A consistent test for conditional heteroskedasticity in time-series regression models. (English) Zbl 0976.62087
Summary: We show that the standard consistent test for testing the null of conditional homoskedasticity (against conditional heteroskedasticity) can be generalized to a time-series regression model with weakly dependent data and with generated regressors. The test statistic is shown to have an asymptotic normal distribution under the null hypothesis of conditional homoskedastic error. We also discuss extension of our test to the case of testing the null of a parametrically specified conditional variance. We advocate using a bootstrap method to overcome the issue of slow convergence of this test statistic to its limiting distribution.
