Tests of Conditional Predictive Ability
TLDR
We argue that the current framework for predictive ability testing (e.g., West, 1996) is not necessarily useful for real-time forecast selection, i.e., for assessing which of two competing forecasting methods will perform better in the future. Expand

A Reality Check for Data Snooping
Data snooping occurs when a given set of data is used more than once for purposes of inference or model selection. When such data reuse occurs, there is always the possibility that any satisfactoryExpand

  • 1 September 1996
TLDR
This book examines the consequences of misspecifications ranging from the fundamental to the nonexistent for the interpretation of likelihood-based methods of statistical estimation and interference, and the conditions under which parameters of interest can be consistently estimated despite misspecification.

Can Mutual Fund 'Stars' Really Pick Stocks? New Evidence from a Bootstrap Analysis
We apply an innovative bootstrap statistical technique to examine the performance of the U.S. equity mutual fund industry during the 1962 to 1994 period. Using this new method, we bootstrap theExpand

Data‐Snooping, Technical Trading Rule Performance, and the Bootstrap
In this paper we utilize Whites Reality Check bootstrap methodology (White (1997)) to evaluate simple technical trading rules while quantifying the data-snooping bias and fully adjusting for itsExpand

Connectionist nonparametric regression: Multilayer feedforward networks can learn arbitrary mappings
  • H. White
  • Mathematics, Computer Science
  • Neural Networks
  • 1 October 1990
TLDR
We show that sufficiently complex multilayer feedforward networks are capable of representing arbitrarily accurate approximations to arbitrary mappings by proving the consistency of a class of connectionist nonparametric regression estimators for arbitrary (square integrable) regression functions.
