Nonlinear Least Squares Estimation of Log-ACD Models
- 29 Downloads
This paper studies a nonlinear least squares estimation method for the logarithmic autoregressive conditional duration (Log-ACD) model. We establish the strong consistency and asymptotic normality for our estimator under weak moment conditions suitable for applications involving heavy-tailed distributions. We also discuss inference for the Log-ACD model and Log-ACD models with exogenous variables. Our results can be easily translated to study Log-GARCH models. Both simulation study and real data analysis are conducted to show the usefulness of our results.
