The Essex Centre for Macro and Financial Econometrics brings together academic and industry expertise from inside and outside the University of Essex to research and help solve important issues in financial markets.
This paper establishes uniform inference results in vector autoregressive (VAR) models. We extend Mikusheva's (2007, 2012) results for univariate autoregressive models to VAR models. We consider confidence intervals for structural impulse responses based on the Wald statistic of Lutkepohl, Staszewska-Bystrova, and Winker (2015). Our results are uniform over the parameter space and horizons. In Monte Carlo simulation experiments, we compare our method with Montiel-Olea and Plagborg-Moller's method based on local projections. Our Monte Carlo results show that our confidence intervals tend to be more accurate than theirs in terms of coverage rates.
This seminar is free to attend.
