 Abstract:
 ... The bootstrap can be validated by considering the sequence of P values obtained by bootstrap iteration, rather than asymptotically. If this sequence converges to a random variable with the uniform U(0,1) distribution, the bootstrap is valid. Here, the model is made discrete and finite, characterised by a threedimensional array of probabilities. This renders bootstrap iteration to any desired orde ...

 Abstract:
 ... We consider Bayesian estimation of state space models when the measurement density is not available but estimating equations for the parameters of the measurement density are available from moment conditions. The most common applications are partial equilibrium models involving moment conditions that depend on dynamic latent variables (e.g., time–varying parameters, stochastic volatility) and dyna ...

 Abstract:
 ... The factor analysis of a (n,m) matrix of observations Y is based on the joint spectral decomposition of the matrix squares YY′ and Y′Y for Principal Component Analysis (PCA). For very large matrix dimensions n and m, this approach has a high level of numerical complexity. The big data feature suggests new estimation methods with a smaller degree of numerical complexity. The double Instrumental Var ...

 ... The standard description of twostep extremum estimation amounts to pluggingin a firststep estimator of nuisance parameters to simplify the optimization problem and then deducing a user friendly, but potentially inefficient, estimator for the parameters of interest. In this paper, we consider a more general setting of twostep estimation where we do not necessarily have ‘nuisance parameters’ but ...

 Abstract:
 ... In large panels of financial time series with dynamic factor structure on the levels or returns, the volatilities of the common and idiosyncratic components often exhibit strong correlations, indicating that both are exposed to the same market volatility shocks. This suggests, alongside the dynamic factor decomposition of returns, a dynamic factor decomposition of volatilities or volatility proxie ...

 Abstract:
 ... New limit theory is developed for comoving systems with explosive processes, connecting continuous and discrete time formulations. The theory uses double asymptotics with infill (as the sampling interval tends to zero) and large time span asymptotics. The limit theory explicitly involves initial conditions, allows for drift in the system, is provided for single and multiple explosive regressors, ...

 Abstract:
 ... We develop an efficient mixedscale estimator for jump regressions using highfrequency asset returns. A fine time scale is used to accurately identify the locations of large rare jumps in the explanatory variables such as the price of the market portfolio. A coarse scale is then used in the estimation in order to attenuate the effect of trading frictions in the dependent variable such as the pric ...

 Abstract:
 ... We propose a twostep method to nonparametrically estimate multivariate models in which the observed outcomes are independent conditional on a discrete latent variable. Applications include microeconometric models with unobserved types of agents, regimeswitching models, and models with misclassification error. In the first step, we estimate weights that transform moments of the marginal distribut ...

Allowing for type correlation is crucial in global games and in models with social interactions as it represents correlated private information and homophily, respectively. Our approach is fully nonparametric in the joint distribution of types and the strategic effects in the payo ...

Recent work has analyzed the forecasting performance of standard dynamic stochastic general equilibrium (DSGE) models, but little attention has been given to DSGE models that incorporate nonlinearities in exogenous driving processes. Against that background,we explore whether incorporating stochastic volatility improves DSGE forecasts (point, interval, and density). We examine realtime forecast a ...

Our model is easy to estimate and is able to simultaneously reproduce the positivity, persistence, and factor structure of the yield curve. Moreover, we incorporate heteroskedasticity and timevarying correlations across yields, both prevalent fea ...

We build an Affine Term Structure Model that provides nonnegative yields at any maturity and that is able to accommodate a shortterm rate that stays at the zero lower bound (ZLB) for extended periods of time while longerterm rates feature high volatilities. We introduce these features through a new univariate nonnegative affine process called ARGZero, and its multivariate affine counterpart ( ...

When employed for outofsample portfolio allocation, the proposed estimator la ...

The main contribution of this paper is to study the applicability of the bootstrap to estimating the distribution of the standard test of overidentifying restrictions of Hansen (1982) when the model is globally identified but the rank condition fails to hold (lack of firstorder local identification). An important example for which these conditions are verified is the popular test of common condit ...

 ... This paper treats the estimation of the inverse g−1 of a monotonic function g satisfying E[Y−g(X)W]=0 where (X,W) is continuously distributed. Using instrumental restrictions, many parameters of interest in econometrics can be expressed as inverses of functions satisfying such a conditional moment. As far as I know, consistent estimators are available only if g(X)=E[YX], which precludes endogeno ...

In this paper we develop a multivariate realised quasi maximum likelihood (QML) approach, carrying out inference as if the observations arise from an asynchronously observed vector scaled Brownian model observed with error. Under stochastic volatility the ...

Nonparametric conditional cumulative distribution function (CDF) estimation has emerged as a powerful tool having widespread potential application, which has led to a literature on estimators of conditional quantile functions that are obtained via inversion of the nonparametrically estimated conditional CDF. Other nonparametric estimators of conditional quantiles that are based on an alternative c ...

Economic theory often provides shape restrictions on functions of interest in applications, such as monotonicity, convexity, nonincreasing (nondecreasing) returns to scale, or the Slutsky inequality of consumer theory; but economic theory does not provide finitedimensional parametric models. This motivates nonparametric estimation under shape restrictions. Nonparametric estimates are often very ...

 Abstract:
 ... Observed highfrequency prices are always contaminated with liquidity costs or market microstructure noise. Inspired by the market microstructure literature, I explicitly model this noise and remove it from observed prices to obtain an estimate of the frictionless price. I then formally test whether the prices adjusted for the estimated liquidity costs are either totally or partially free from noi ...
