Research

MODELLING AND TESTING FOR JUMPS IN FINANCIAL ASSETS.
We use high frequency data (BrokerTec US Treasury data on the 2-, 5-, 10- and 30- year bonds) to examine and compare the results of alternative univariate jump tests recently proposed in the literature, as a first step to evaluate the performance of these tests. The following tests are considered: Aϊt-Sahalia and Jacod (2008), Andersen, Bollerslev and Dobrev (2007), Barndorff-Nielsen and Shephard (2005), Jiang and Oomen (2006), Lee and Mykland (2007) and Mancini (2001). We are interested in identifying which tests are likely to exhibit more power, as well as in determining how the sampling frequency affects the jump identification for different tests. Moreover, we investigate how bond prices react to different types of (scheduled/ non-scheduled) information releases.

ASYMPTOTICS AND STRUCTURAL BREAKS IN PANEL MODELS.
We develop a novel asymptotic theory for panel models with common shocks. We also propose an estimation and testing framework for parameter instability in cointegrated panel regressions with common and idiosyncratic trends. We develop tests for structural change for the slope parameters under the null hypothesis of no structural break against the alternative hypothesis of (at least) one common change point which is possibly unknown. We derive the limiting distributions of the proposed test statistics. Monte Carlo simulations examine size and power of the proposed tests.

IDENTIFICATION ROBUST INFERENCE IN COINTEGRATING REGRESSIONS
In cointegrating regressions, available estimators and test statistics are nuisance parameter dependent. This paper addresses this problem from an identification-robust perspective with focus on set estimation of the long-run coefficient (denoted β). We propose to invert LR-type statistics that test a specified value for β against an unrestricted or a cointegration-restricted alternative. Tests in implicit form as in Phillips (1994) are also inverted. Allowing for weak identification, we propose three methods to adequately size the considered tests: a bounds-based critical value based on Dufour (1989, 1997) and Dufour and Khalaf (2002), a data-dependent "Type 2 Robust" critical value based on Andrews and Cheng (2013), and a simulation-based method based on Dufour (2006). For two empirically relevant special cases, we provide analytical solutions to the test inversion problem using the mathematics of quadrics as in Dufour and Taamouti (2005). We conduct a simulation study to assess the properties of our proposed inference methods. In addition, we also check whether and to what degree popular estimation methods, specifically the standard Maximum Likelihood of Johansen (1995), the Fully Modified OLS (Phillips and Hansen, 1990; Phillips, 1991, 1995), the Dynamic OLS of Stock and Watson (1993), and the stationarity-test based method from Wright (2000), suffer from this problem, imposing and relaxing strong exogeneity. Simulation results can be summarized as follows. The size of DOLS and FMOLS based t-tests exceeds 90% at the identification boundary. Failure of weak-exogeneity causes severe distortions for DOLS as well as for FMOLS even when β is identified. The test from Wright (2000) is also oversized at the boundary. In contrast, even when weak exogeneity fails, all our proposed LR-based corrections have good size regardless of the identification status, and good power when β is identified.

THE IMPACT OF MACRO NEWS ON THE TERM STRUCTURE OF INTEREST RATES.
The evaluation of the impact of the news effects is one of the key questions in financial economics and a hot topic in recent studies of macroeconomic analysis. It may not be the act of releasing information to the market which is important, nor the (gross) information embodied in the estimate itself, rather, it is the extent to which the actual announcement differs from the expected which determines the response of the market to the new information (Kim et al. 2004). The aim of this project is to increase the knowledge of the impact of macro news, coming from scheduled macro announcements, on the US interest rates term structure.

BREAKS AND LONG MEMORY PROCESSES IN ECONOMICS AND FINANCE.
We propose a fractional version of two well-known credit risk pricing structural models: the Merton and Black and Cox models. We assume that the value of the firm obeys to a Geometric Fractional Brownian Motion. Prices for the equity, the bond and credit spreads are derived and a sensitivity analysis is performed. To provide a justification for these models, an empirical analysis is carried out, which employs two different datasets: Constant Maturity Yields and Moody’s Long-Term for the period December 1992–November 2003 Corporate Bond Yield Averages and Lehman Brothers Eurodollar Indices covering the period June 1996–July 2006. Long memory properties of Treasury and corporate bond yields as well as credit spreads are thus investigated.

Research Topics

MONTE CARLO COMBINED TESTS WITH NUISANCE PARAMETERS (with A. Bianchi, J.M. Dufour, L. Khalaf)
The main of this project is to expand Monte Carlo tests to the case of non-identifiable parameters relevant in modelling economic and financial relationships. We plan to adopt the approach of Redner (1981), where the problem is framed in the theory of topological quotient spaces. Mainly for our reference and to clarify precisely the objects we deal with, first we introduce some notions on topological spaces and quotient topological spaces, and convergence of random variables on topological spaces. Next, we define the quotient parameter space as in Redner (1981) and formulate our setting in this context. Then, we will generalize Dufour (2006) results on Monte Carlo tests based on consistent point estimate to the case of non-identifiable parameters. Finally, we will produce the relevant proofs of the validity of the test and interesting applications of relevance to economics and finance.
EUROPEAN SHADOW BANKING AND SYSTEMIC RISK (with C. Bellavite Pellegrini and M. Meoli)
Shadow banking entities have been repeatedly charged with the breaking up of the recent financial crises, as they may have contributed to increase the systemic risk and thus jeopardise the stability of the whole financial system. This project examines the features of the shadow banking system in United Kingdom first and then the whole European banking system and estimate, by using the CoVaR methodology (Adrian and Brunnermeier, 2011, 2014), the contribution of the money market funds, an important part of the shadow banking entities, to the systemic risk in United Kingdom. We plan to investigate the impact of institutional corporate variables on the measure of systemic risk taking into account different financial crises since the sub-prime crisis originated in USA in 2007-2008.
TIME-VARYING LOADINGS IN HIGH-DIMENTIONAL FACTOR MODELS (with R. Borghi, Eric Hillebrand, J. G. Mikkelsen)
The main of this project is to develop a maximum likelihood estimator of time-varying loadings in high-dimensional factor models. We specify the loadings to evolve as stationary vector autoregressions (VAR) and show that consistent estimates of the loadings parameters can be obtained by a two-step maximum likelihood estimation procedure. In the first step, principal components are extracted from the data to form factor estimates. In the second step, the parameters of the loadings VARs are estimated as a set of univariate regression models with time-varying coefficients. We document the finite-sample properties of the maximum likelihood estimator through an extensive simulation study and illustrate the empirical relevance of the time-varying loadings structure using a large quarterly dataset for the US economy. Further empirical applications will be conducted using foreign exchange rates. In addition, this framework will be implemented for portfolios analysis: portfolio managers often use factor models to facilitate the estimation of the covariance matrix for large N portfolios of stocks and this practice helps portfolio optimisation, risk analysis and comovement analysis.
BACK-TESTING ES TECHNIQUES FOR RISK BASED REGULATORY CAPITAL (A. Leccadito and L. Khalaf)
The main aim of this project is to develop finite sample parametric and non-parametric methods, via power-enhancing statistical combinations aiming to harvest the size-correct power advantage of various new and existing tests. Combining information on the number and dynamic evolution of violations holds promise. In fact, when clustering is severe, the number of exceptions have also been observed to typically increase. Incremental information can also be expected by simultaneously testing several VaR probability levels. The project thus will generalize the multilevel tests of Perignon and Smith (2008) and Leccadito et al. (2014). An extensive simulation study will be reported and various empirical applications will be considered.
COMBINING P-VALUES TO TEST FOR MULTIPLE BREAKS IN THE VECM WITH AND WITHOUT THE PRESENCE OF WEAK-EXOGENEITY (with A. Bianchi, M. Bergamelli, L. Khalaf)
The main aim of the project is to develop limiting theory to detect and test for multiple structural breaks in the VECM framework. First, we show that breaks in the long run matrix BETA imply breaks in the short run impact matrix ALPHA, unless weak exogeneity is imposed, and breaks in BETA imply also breaks in the covariance matrix of the error term. Second, we extend the likelihood ratio test proposed in Hansen (2003) to the case of unknown break dates through the specification of several scenarios regarding the number and the location of the breaks. We define a minimum p-value statistic with critical values approximated by bootstrapping. Monte Carlo simulations show that the proposed statistic has optimal finite sample properties when imposing and relaxing weak exogeneity as well as when exploring the impact of weak identification of the cointegrating relationship. A series of applications will illustrate the empirical validity of the framework.
JUMPS, COJUMPS AND ASYMMETRIC JUMP BETA IN HIGH FREQUENCY DATA (with V. Alexeev, S. Boffelli, J. Novotny)
We propose to use a combination of univariate tests for jumps to construct a cojump testing procedure robust to microstructure noise and spurious detection. The proposed test allows us to distinguish between transitory-permanent and endogenous-exogenous co-jumps and determine a causality effect between price and liquidity. In the empirical application, we plan to apply the co-jump testing framework to evaluate the relationship the price and the available liquidity of EUR/USD FX spot during the week from May 3 to May 7, 2010. We also evaluate the impact of extreme market shifts on equity portfolios. Assuming that investors care differently about downside losses as opposed to upside gains, we estimate jump sensitivities for the negative and positive market shifts. We study the implications of the difference in negative and positive sensitivities to market jumps for portfolio risk management by contrasting the results for individual stocks with the results for portfolios with varying number of holdings. In the context of a portfolio, we investigate to what extent the downside and upside jump risks can be diversified away. Varying the jump identification threshold, we show that the asymmetry is more prominent for more extreme events and that the number of holdings required to stabilise portfolios’ sensitivities to negative jumps is higher than under positive jumps. Ignoring this asymmetry results in under-diversification of portfolios and increased exposure to extreme negative market shifts.
