Sample text

That is, it measures the dynamic dependence of xt on its past xt−k . Linear time series analysis focuses on studying the dynamic dependence of the series xt . The autocovariance γk has two important properties: (i) γ0 = Var(xt ) and (ii) γ−k = γk . The second property holds because γ−k = Cov(xt , xt−(−k ) ) = Cov(xt−(−k ) , xt ) = Cov(xt+k , xt ) = Cov(xt1 , xt1 −k ) = γk , where t1 = t + k . 5 shows the scatter plot of the monthly simple returns of IBM stock and the S&P 500 index. The two returns appear to be positively related.

It measures the central location of the distribution. We denote the mean of X by μx . For an asset, an interesting question is whether the mean of its return is zero. In other words, we often consider the hypothesis testing H0 : μx = 0 versus Ha : μ = 0 or H0 : μx ≤ 0 versus Ha : μx > 0. The th central moment of X is defined as m = E [(X − μx ) ] = ∞ −∞ (x − μx ) f (x )dx provided that the integral exists. The second central moment, denoted by σx2 , measures the variability of X and is called the variance of X .

Consider the monthly stock returns of S&P composite index from January 1940 to September 2011 in Problem 2. Perform the following tests and draw conclusions using the 5% significance level. (a) Test H0 : μ = 0 versus Ha : μ = 0, where μ denotes the mean return. (b) Test H0 : m3 = 0 versus Ha : m3 = 0, where m3 denotes the skewness. (c) Test H0 : K = 3 versus Ha : K = 3, where K denotes the kurtosis. Consider the daily log returns of American Express stock from September 1, 2001 to September 30, 2011 as in Problem 1.
