Properties of AR(1) The stationary condition for AR(1) process is | φ 1 | < 1. X t = φ 0 + φ 1 X t - 1 + w t Var ( X t ) = φ 2 1 Var ( X t - 1 ) + σ 2 If X t is stationary, (1 - φ 2 1 ) Var ( X t ) = σ 2 , thus | φ 1 | < 1. Condition on the past, we have E ( X t | X t - 1 ) = φ 0 + φ 1 X t - 1 , Var ( X t | X t - 1 ) = Var ( w t ) = σ 2 . Financial time series – lecture four ARMA models
MA representation of AR(1) For simplicity, consider the mean zero series X t = φ 1 X t - 1 + w t = φ 1 ( φ 1 X t - 2 + w t - 1 ) + w t = φ 2 1 X t - 2 + φ 1 w t - 1 + w t = · · · = w t + φ 1 w t - 1 + φ 2 1 w t - 2 + · · · The shock at t - k has an exponentially decaying influence on X t . The associated coefficients are called the ψ weights. Financial time series – lecture four ARMA models
Higher order AR models The zero mean AR(p) model is X t = φ 1 X t - 1 + φ 2 X t - 2 + · · · + φ p X t - p + w t , where w t is uncorrelated with X t - j for any j . Note that mean is zero here. Include the mean, the model is X t = φ 0 + φ 1 X t - 1 + φ 2 X t - 2 + · · · + φ p X t - p + w t , where φ 0 = μ (1 - φ 1 - · · · - φ p ), and μ = E ( X t ). Stationarity condition: all roots of 1 - φ 1 B - · · · - φ p B p = 0 are outside the unit disc. B is the backshift operator. Financial time series – lecture four ARMA models
AR(2) with complex roots Consider an AR(2) X t = 1 . 5 X t - 1 - 0 . 75 X t - 2 + w t , the roots of 1 - 1 . 5 B + 0 . 75 B 2 are outside of unit circle. This will ensure a stationary AR(2) process.
