The complex tail dependency structure in a dynamic network with a large number of nodes is an important object to study. Here we propose a network quantile autoregression model (NQAR), which characterizes the dynamic quantile behavior.

16 Nov 2017

Dr Michael Halling (Stockholm School of...

While a large literature on return predictability has shown a link between valuation levels and expected rates of returns, we document a robust link between valuation levels and the shape of the distribution of cumulative (up to 24 months) total returns.

02 Nov 2017

Dr Toru Kitagawa (University College London):...

One of the main objectives of empirical analysis of experiments and quasi-experiments is to inform policy decisions that determine the allocation of treatments to individuals with different observable covariates.

Recessions are often accompanied by spikes of corporate default and prolonged declines of business credit.

03 Oct 2017

Empirical evidence suggests that investor protection affects asset prices. We develop a dynamic asset pricing model to shed light on the empirical regularities and underlying mechanisms at play.

Abstract: We propose a method to explore the causal transmission of a catalyst variable through two endogenous variables of interest. The method is based on the reduced-form system formed from the conditional distribution of the two endogenous variables given the catalyst.

23 Apr 2015

Russell Davidson: Diagnostics for the Bootstrap...

The bootstrap is typically much less reliable in the context of time-series models with serial correlation of unknown form than it is when regularity conditions for the conventional IID bootstrap, based on resampling, apply.

26 Mar 2015

Yoosoon Chang (Indiana): Regime Switching Model...

This paper introduces a model with regime switching, which is driven by an autoregressive latent factor correlated with the innovation to the observed time series. 

24 Mar 2015

Dr Prosper Dovonon (University of Concordia):...

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 first order local identification).

12 Mar 2015

Professor Alastair Hall (Manchester): The...

Models with multiple discrete breaks in parameters are usually estimated via least squares.
