Goodness-of-fit tests for Log-GARCH and EGARCH models

This paper studies goodness-of-fit tests and specification tests for an extension of the Log-GARCH model, which is both asymmetric and stable by scaling. A Lagrange-multiplier test is derived for testing the extended Log-GARCH against more general formulations taking the form of combinations of Log-GARCH and exponential GARCH (EGARCH). The null assumption of an EGARCH is also tested. Portmanteau goodness-of-fit tests are developed for the extended Log-GARCH. An application to real financial data is proposed.
