Isi artikelA puzzling characteristic of asset returns for various frequencies is the often observed positive autocorrelation at lag one. To some extent this can be explained by standard asset pricing models when assuming time-varying risk premia. However, one often finds better results when directly fitting an autoregressive model, for which there is little economic foundation. One may ask whether the underlying process does in fact contain an autoregressive component. It is therefore of interest to have a statistical test at hand that performs well under the stylized facts of financial returns. In this paper, we investigate empirical properties of competing devices to test for autoregressive dynamics in case of heteroskedastic errors. For the volatility process we assume GARCH, TGARCH and stochastic volatility. The results indicate that standard quasi-maximum-likelihood inference for the autoregressive parameter is negatively affected by misspecification of the volatility process. We show that bootstrapped versions of least-squares-based statistics have better empirical size and comparable power properties. Applied to German stock return data, the alternative tests yield very different p-values for a considerable number of stock return processes.
