Linear–quadratic term structure models for negative euro area yields
Marco Realdon and
Economics Letters, 2017, vol. 155, issue C, 149-153
Four factor linear–quadratic models (LQTSM) fit negative Euro yields well, as short yields can be negative, but not the longest yields. LQTSM outperform four factor quadratic models that permit negative yields, which in turn outperform affine Gaussian models.
