2
Problem Statement Financial time series possess some stylized facts like time-varying conditional variance (volatility) and constant unconditional variance, and can be modeled by GARCH family of equations Analyzing volatility is prior consideration of asset pricing and risk management External events (policies and crisis) causes temporary (outlier) and permanent changes (structural break) and the unconditional variance may not constant Identification of break points is important to determine the effect of external events and for proper modeling and forecasting Tests for structural breaks in volatility (Kokoszka and Leipus, 2000; Andreou and Ghysels, 2002; Sanso et al., 2004; de Pooter and van Dijk, 2004 …) ignore the effect of outliers An stochastic regime-switching model is not suitable for modeling and forecasting volatility in the presence of structural changes since permanent changes are non-stochastic

3
Dependency Volatility clustering (Manderbolt, 1963) Time varying conditional variance (Engle,1982) Constant unconditional variance (Engle,1982) Persistence (Bollerslev, 1986) Excess kurtosis (Baillie and Bollerslev,1989) Asymmetry (Zakoian, 1990) Long memory (Baillie et al., 1996) …… Stylized Facts of Financial Time Series

4
By permanent change in variance of financial time series we mean change in the unconditional variance When a process is observed for a long period of time, permanent changes in the variance may appear as the consequences of external events like natural calamities, economic crisis or policies taken by management (Diebold, 1986; Lamoreaux and Lastraps, 1990; Morana and Beltratti, 2004; Ezaguirre et al., 2004; Rapach and Strauss, 2008 and Karoglou, 2009 ) Ignorance of structural changes in variance can result as spurious IGARCH or long memory effect (Mikosch and Starica, 2004) From an economic point of view, structural breaks in financial markets affect fundamental financial indicators (Bates, 2000) Permanent Change in Variance

5
Wavelet Filters Wavelet transform expresses possibly continuous function in term of discontinuous wavelets. By dilating (stretching) and translating (shifting) a wavelet, we can capture features that are local both in time and frequency The main feature of wavelet analysis is the possibility to separate out a time series into its constituent multiresolution components. The main algorithm dates back to the work of Stephane Mallat in 1988/89 The discrete wavelet transform (DWT) uses orthogonal transformations to decompose a vector X of length n=2 J into vectors of wavelet coefficients D 1,D 2,...,D J and A 1,A 2,...,A J, where each set of wavelet coefficients contains n/2 j data points for j = 1,..., J The approximation coefficients A 1,A 2,...,A J contain the low- frequency content, and the detail coefficients D 1,D 2,...,D J contain the high-frequency content By using a small window one looks at high frequency components and by using large window one looks at low- frequency components

6
Economic Process Economic and financial systems contain variables that operate on a variety of time scales simultaneously This implies that the relationship between variables may be different across time scales Simple example: Securities market contains many traders operating on different time scales Long view (years), concentrate on market fundamentals Short view (months), interested in temporary deviations from long-term growth or seasonality Really short view (hours), interested in ephemeral changes in market behavior The most important property that wavelets possess for the analysis of economic data is the decomposition by time-scale. Different scale components represent different features of time series. Noise is high frequency components, whereas seasonality is low frequency component.

7
Structural Break Detection CUSUM test for dependent process is an estimator of the long run fourth moment, m 4 Here is a proxy volatility measure and input of the test whereand The asymptotic distribution of is given by where is a Brownian Bridge is a standard Brownian motion k=1, 2, …., N Kokoszka and Leipus (2000) give a consistent CUSUM statistic for detecting variance change in infinite ARCH process

8
Structural Break Detection CUSUM test for dependent process The Kokoska and Leipus (KL) test together with ICSS algorithm (Inclan & Tiao, 1994) can be used to detect multiple structural breaks in volatility The simulation studies of Andreou and Ghysels (2002) and Sanso et al. (2004) extend the use of KL test in more general volatile condition and for detecting multiple breaks but the size distortion problem of KL test is noted

9
Structural Break Detection Alternative input for KL test based on MODWT Since a variable is a container of information due to all types of variations: both short-scale and long-scale, square of a variable is, therefore, may be contaminated by some irrelevant components We suggest a proxy measure of volatility based on maximal overlap discrete wavelet transform (MODWT) coefficients MODWT is a modified version of DWT given by Percival and Walden (2000) MODWT is highly redundant but translation invariant transformation MODWT is energy preserving and properly aligned with features of original series Unlike DWT, dyadic sample size is not necessarily required for MODWT Like DWT, analysis of variance (ANOVA) and multiresolution analysis (MRA) is possible with MODWT

10
Structural Break Detection Alternative input for KL test based on MODWT For given any integer J 01, the MODWT wavelet coefficients of {x t } form a (J 0 +1)N order matrix as k th wavelet coefficients for different scales Wavelet coefficients at level j associated with scale j Wavelet scaling coefficients represents low frequency components

11
Structural Break Detection Alternative input for KL test based on MODWT The variance of {X t } can be expressed in terms of multilevel wavelet coefficients as Percival and Walden (2000) show that mean of is and variance As J 0, becomes much smoother and its variance tends to zero and thus for large J 0

12
Structural Break Detection Alternative input for KL test based on MODWT is the contribution to the energy of {X t } due to changes at scale j = 2 j-1 The (j,k) th wavelet periodogram, (k = 0, 1, ……, N-1) is the k th contribution to the energy of {X t } due to changes at scale j We define an estimator of average variation for different scale at point k based on wavelet periodogram with As J 0 increases we will be close to the total variation of the series at point k

13
Structural Break Detection Alternative input for KL test based on MODWT Since the choice of J 0 depends on length of the sample, we would like to chose j s such that as J 0 Fryzlewicz et al. (2003) suggest j =1/2 j (j=1, 2, …, J 0 ) This is a good choice because and the weight j =1/2 j is quite well matching with scale j We call (k=0, 1, …., N-1) the k th multiscale wavelet periodogram (MSWP) that measures the variation at point k and can be used as input for KL testKL test The level 1 wavelet periodogram is a special case of MSWP which has been used by many authors to detect outlier and to measure the volatility as well

Structural Break Detection Robustness KL test is robust to short lived jumps or outliers of moderate size (Andreou and Ghysels, 2002) Rodrigues and Rubia (2011) show that in presence of bounded outliers KL test is consistent and the asymptotic distribution is invariant We investigate the extent of robustness of KL test and found that it is heavily sensitive to outliers of large size Its a crucial decision which one is to address first- the breaks or the outliers when both are present, because presence of outliers may influence break detection and vice versa We propose KL test for detecting breaks controlling the effect of outliers by Winsorization. Winsorization replaces extreme points with cutoff values

Structural Break Detection Winsorized KL test Scaled-deviation-Winsorization (Wu and Zuo, 2008): (*) Winsorized KL test: (**)

25
The advantage of scaled-deviation-Winsorization is that by choosing η appropriately it is possible to construct an interval that includes all the good observations. Mathematically, for a small positive quantity ε, we can chose η such that The chance of mistreating in scaled-deviation- Winsorization technique is low and it can produce the same set of observations as in the original data if no observation is too far from the centre The fraction of Winsorized points is not fixed but data-dependent Structural Break Detection Winsorized KL test

33
Modeling Volatility Discrete Breaks GARCH(1,1) model with k dummies (Lamoureux and Lastrapes, 1990) where z t N(0,1) and Laumoreux and Lastrapes (1990) only allow the drift to be changed over periods. A straightforward extension can be adding dummies for other parameters as well (see Kim et al., 2010, for example) To determine the timing of structural breaks, there are model free methods available for detecting break points in volatile series (see Kokoszka and Leipus, 2000, for instance)

34
Modeling Volatility Stochastic Breaks Switching ARCH (Cai, 1994) The latent variable S t is assumed to follow a first order Markov process with transition probabilities

35
Modeling Volatility Stochastic Breaks SWARCH model (Hamilton and Susmel, 1994) While Cai (1994) allows the drift of the ARCH process to be varied depending on the latent variable S t, Hamilton and Susmel (1994) propose for multiplying by different constant as S t indicates changes of regime To avoid the difficulties of estimation due to path dependence Cai (1994) and Hamilton and Susmel (1994) confined themselves to ARCH modelspath dependence

36
Modeling Volatility Stochastic Breaks Gray (1996) propose that the conditional variance of ε t-1, given information at t-2, can be calculated by where is the variance of ε t-1, given S t-1 = j. Each regime variance is Klaassen (2002) proposes the use of p t-1 (S t-1 = j), j = 1, …, k, instead of p t-2 (S t-1 = j), that is, use of information up to time t-1 instead of t-2

Modeling Volatility Stochastic Breaks Hass et al. (2004) noted that these models is analytically intractable and, therefore, conditions for covariance stationarity have yet not established. They propose for {S t } is a Markov chain with a transition matrix P=[p ij ]=[P(S t =j|S t-1 =i], i, j = 1, …, k The variance equation is defined as where

39
Modeling Volatility Discrete vs Stochastic Breaks Nguyen and Bellahah (2008) find that emerging market experienced multiple breaks in volatility dynamics. The shifts in volatility are associated with events closely related to stock market liberalization, market expansions, and some major economic and political events Sensier and van Dijk (2004) analyze 214 US macroeconomic time series and find most of the series had an experience of a break within the study period leading to a conclusion that increased stability of economic fluctuations is a widespread phenomenon. They noted that reduced output volatility is primarily accounted for by a reduction in the variance of exogenous shocks hitting the economy. They demonstrate that volatility changes are more appropriately characterized as instantaneous breaks rather than as gradual changes McConnel and Quiros (2000) documented a structural break in the volatility of US GDP growth. They argue that changes in inventory management techniques have served to stabilize output fluctuations. They also illustrate that widely used regime switching framework is no longer a useful characterization of business cycle movement; the GDP growth is better characterized by a process with structural break in the variance

Steps for Analyzing Volatility in Presence of Breaks Identification and verification of break points Verification of Normality, Asymmetry, Memory property and Persistence Segmentation of sample period for in-sample and out- of-sample forecast evaluation Selection of appropriate model based on both in- sample and out-of-sample performance Fitting final model and making inference Selection of Sample period No break identified Breaks identified Not interested in studying breaks Interested in studying breaks Fitting a proper break model and test significance of breaks

44
Conclusion Wavelet filtering facilitate us to decompose a time series variable into its component variations at different time scales and thus, provides an deep insight about the features of the process; use of proposed wavelet-based input improves the size property for the KL test with an assurance that the power is still reasonable Proposed scaled-deviation-Winsorized KL is robust to detect structural breaks in variance Stochastic switching volatility models may overlook the structural changes and so, should be utilized with care Inclusion of observations from the period before a break do not improve forecasting for post break period Break detection is prior to volatility modeling Investigate on the properties of MSWP as a volatility measure, like its asymptotic distribution, is an interesting subject of future studies
