Alternative Statistical Specifications of Commodity Price Distribution with Fat Tail

Abstract

We investigate the modeling of commodity prices that exhibit “fat tails” in the empirical marginal distributions. Using electricity price data, we explore the goodness-of-fit of different classes of distributions with an emphasis on capturing the fat tails in the data. Specifically, we fit empirical marginal distributions of time series data to… (More)
