The high frequency behavior of the KPSS test, which is most commonly used to test for stationarity, is analyzed in a continuous time framework. Our asymptotics show that the test has no discriminatory power at high frequency: It either always rejects stationarity or has no nontrivial power at high frequency. The test becomes valid at high frequency only when the bandwidth of its long-run variance estimate is chosen suitably in our framework. We also analyze the residual-based KPSS test for cointegration.
