The Effect of (Mis-Specified) GARCH Filters on the Finite Sample Distribution of the BDS Test

Chris Brooks and Saeed M Heravi

Computational Economics, 1999, vol. 13, issue 2, 147-62

Abstract: This paper considers the effect of using a GARCH filter on the properties of the BDS test statistic as well as a number of other issues relating to the application of the test. It is found that, for certain values of the user-adjustable parameters, the finite sample distribution of the test is far-removed from asymptotic normality. In particular, when data generated from some completely different model class are filtered through a GARCH model, the frequency of rejection of iid falls, often substantially. The implication of this result is that it might be inappropriate to use non-rejection of iid of the standardised residuals of a GARCH model as evidence that the GARCH model 'fits' the data.
