Volatility Estimates of the Short Term Interest Rate with an Application to German Data

Henning Dankenbring
This paper proposes a procedure for testing alternative specifications of the short term interest rate’s dynamics which takes into account that according to some restrictions the interest rate is nonstationary, i.e. the traditional test statistic has a non-standard distribution. Moreover, we do not take the specification of the mean equation as given by the theory but rather base the decision of the lag structure on a robust Lagrange Multiplier test. In contrast to U.S. data...
