Local Power of Andrews and Ploberger Tests Against Nearly Integrated, Nearly White Noise Process

Abstract: We find that the Andrews and Ploberger’s (1996) tests have unit local power against the nearly integrated, nearly white noise process (ref. Nabeya and Perron (1994)). Therefore, compared with the stationary local alternatives, higher power is expected when testing against such process. Monte Carlo simulation confirms our results. We apply the tests to monthly SP500 stock returns and strongly reject the martingale difference hypothesis.
