# NONLINEARITY OF ARCH AND STOCHASTIC VOLATILITY MODELS AND BARTLETT'S FORMULA

@inproceedings{Kokoszka2011NONLINEARITYOA, title={NONLINEARITY OF ARCH AND STOCHASTIC VOLATILITY MODELS AND BARTLETT'S FORMULA}, author={Piotr Kokoszka and Dimitris Nicolas Politis}, year={2011} }

We review some notions of linearity of time series and show that ARCH or stochastic volatility (SV) processes are not only non-linear: they are not even weakly linear, i.e., they do not even have a martingale representation. Consequently, the use of Bartlett's formula is unwarranted in the context of data typically modeled as ARCH or SV processes such as financial returns. More surprisingly, we show that even the squares of an ARCH or SV process are not weakly linear. Finally, we discuss an…

We extend the classic ''martingale-plus-noise'' model for high-frequency returns to accommodate an error correction mechanism and endogenous pricing errors. It is motivated by (i) novel empirical…

Model-Based Prediction in Autoregression

This work develops a coherent methodology for the construction of bootstrap prediction intervals for time series that can be modeled as linear, nonlinear or nonparametric autoregressions, and presents detailed algorithms for these different models.

Asymptotics for Autocovariances and Integrated Periodograms for Linear Processes Observed at Lower Frequencies

We explore the limits of the autoregressive (AR) sieve bootstrap, and show that its applicability extends well beyond the realm of linear time series as has been previously thought. In particular,…

Predictive Inference for Locally Stationary Time Series
