Modeling Conditional Correlations of Asset Returns: A Smooth Transition Approach

Annastiina Silvennoinen and Timo Teräsvirta ()

Econometric Reviews, 2015, vol. 34, issue 1-2, 174-197

Abstract: In this paper we propose a new multivariate GARCH model with time-varying conditional correlation structure. The time-varying conditional correlations change smoothly between two extreme states of constant correlations according to a predetermined or exogenous transition variable. An LM-test is derived to test the constancy of correlations and LM- and Wald tests to test the hypothesis of partially constant correlations. Analytical expressions for the test statistics and the required derivatives are provided to make computations feasible. An empirical example based on daily return series of five frequently traded stocks in the S&P 500 stock index completes the paper.
