No 317:
An ARCH Robust STAR Test

Michael K. Andersson, Bruno Eklund () and Johan Lyhagen ()

Abstract: The LM type linearity test for STAR nonlinearities is severely distorted when the process is governed by conditional heteroskedasticity. In order to correct the test we propose a parametric bootstrap. It is shown, by means of Monte Carlo methods, that the bootstrap test is almost exact.
