Infer the loglikelihood objective function values for an EGARCH(1,1) and EGARCH(2,1) model fit to NASDAQ Composite Index returns. To identify which model is the more parsimonious, adequate fit, conduct a likelihood ratio test.

Load the NASDAQ data included with the toolbox, and convert the index to returns. Set aside the first two observations to use as presample data.

```
load Data_EquityIdx
nasdaq = DataTable.NASDAQ;
r = price2ret(nasdaq);
r0 = r(1:2);
rn = r(3:end);
```

Fit an EGARCH(1,1) model to the returns, and infer the loglikelihood objective function value.

Mdl1 = egarch(1,1); EstMdl1 = estimate(Mdl1,rn,'E0',r0); [~,logL1] = infer(EstMdl1,rn,'E0',r0);

EGARCH(1,1) Conditional Variance Model: -------------------------------------- Conditional Probability Distribution: Gaussian Standard t Parameter Value Error Statistic ----------- ----------- ------------ ----------- Constant -0.135178 0.0221337 -6.10733 GARCH{1} 0.983864 0.00242681 405.415 ARCH{1} 0.199966 0.0139932 14.2902 Leverage{1} -0.0602436 0.0056558 -10.6516

Fit an EGARCH(2,1) model to the returns, and infer the loglikelihood objective function value.

Mdl2 = egarch(2,1); EstMdl2 = estimate(Mdl2,rn,'E0',r0); [~,logL2] = infer(EstMdl2,rn,'E0',r0);

Conduct a likelihood ratio test, with the more parsimonious EGARCH(1,1) model as the null model, and the EGARCH(2,1) model as the alternative. The degree of freedom for the test is 1, because the EGARCH(2,1) model has one more parameter than the EGARCH(1,1) model (an additional GARCH term).

[h,p] = lratiotest(logL2,logL1,1)

h = logical 0 p = 0.2256

The null hypothesis is not rejected (`h = 0`

). At the 0.05 significance level, the EGARCH(1,1) model is not rejected in favor of the EGARCH(2,1) model.

A GARCH(*P*, *Q*) model is nested within a GJR(*P*, *Q*) model. Therefore, you can perform a likelihood ratio test to compare GARCH(*P*, *Q*) and GJR(*P*, *Q*) model fits.

Conduct a likelihood ratio test, with the more parsimonious GARCH(1,1) model as the null model, and the GJR(1,1) model as the alternative. The degree of freedom for the test is 1, because the GJR(1,1) model has one more parameter than the GARCH(1,1) model (a leverage term).

`Y`

— Response datanumeric column vector | numeric matrix

Response data, specified as a numeric column vector or matrix.

As a column vector, `Y`

represents a single
path of the underlying series.

As a matrix, the rows of `Y`

correspond to
periods and the columns correspond to separate paths. The observations
across any row occur simultaneously.

`infer`

infers the conditional variances of `Y`

. `Y`

usually
represents an innovation series with mean 0 and variances characterized
by `Mdl`

. It is the continuation of the presample
innovation series `E0`

. `Y`

can
also represent a time series of innovations with mean 0 plus an offset.
If `Mdl`

has a nonzero offset, then the software
stores its value in the `Offset`

property (`Mdl.Offset`

).

`infer`

assumes that observations across any
row occur simultaneously.

The last observation of any series is the latest observation.

`NaN`

s indicate missing values. `infer`

removes
missing values. `infer`

uses list-wise deletion to
remove any `NaN`

s. Removing `NaN`

s
in the data reduces the sample size. Removing missing values, can
also create irregular time series.

Specify optional
comma-separated pairs of `Name,Value`

arguments. `Name`

is
the argument name and `Value`

is the corresponding value.
`Name`

must appear inside single quotes (`' '`

). You can
specify several name and value pair arguments in any order as
`Name1,Value1,...,NameN,ValueN`

.

`'E0',[1 1;0.5 0.5],'V0',[1 0.5;1 0.5]`

specifies
two equivalent presample paths of innovations and two, different presample
paths of conditional variances.`'E0'`

— Presample innovationsnumeric column vector | numeric matrix

Presample innovations, specified as the comma-separated pair
consisting of `'E0'`

and a numeric column vector
or matrix. The presample innovations provide initial values for the
innovations process of the conditional variance model `Mdl`

,
and derive from a distribution with mean 0.

`E0`

must contain at least `Mdl.Q`

elements
or rows. If `E0`

contains extra rows, then `infer`

uses
the latest `Mdl.Q`

only.

The last element or row contains the latest presample innovation.

If

`E0`

is a column vector, it represents a single path of the underlying innovation series.`infer`

applies`E0`

to each inferred path.If

`E0`

is a matrix, then each column represents a presample path of the underlying innovation series.`E0`

must have at least as many columns as`Y`

. If`E0`

has more columns than necessary,`infer`

uses the first`size(Y,2)`

columns only.

The defaults are:

For GARCH(

*P*,*Q*) and GJR(*P*,*Q*) models,`infer`

sets any necessary presample innovations to the square root of the average squared value of the offset-adjusted response series`Y`

.

For EGARCH(*P*,*Q*) models, `infer`

sets
any necessary presample innovations to zero.

**Example: **`'E0',[1 1;0.5 0.5]`

**Data Types: **`double`

`'V0'`

— Presample conditional variancesnumeric column vector with positive entries | numeric matrix with positive entries

Presample conditional variances, specified as the comma-separated
pair consisting of `'V0'`

and a numeric column vector
or matrix with positive entries. `V0`

provides initial
values for the conditional variances in the model.

If

`V0`

is a column vector, then`infer`

applies it to each output path.If

`V0`

is a matrix, then each column represents a presample path of conditional variances.`V0`

must have at least as many columns as`Y`

. If`V0`

has more columns than required,`infer`

uses the first`size(Y,2)`

columns only.

For GARCH(

*P*,*Q*) and GJR(*P*,*Q*) models,`V0`

must have at least`Mdl.P`

rows (or elements) to initialize the variance equation.For EGARCH(

*P*,*Q*) models,`V0`

must have at least`max(Mdl.P,Mdl.Q)`

rows to initialize the variance equation.

If the number of rows in `V0`

exceeds the
necessary number, then `infer`

uses the latest,
required number of observations only.

The last element row contains the latest observation.

By default, `infer`

sets any necessary
observations to the average squared value of the offset-adjusted response
series `Y`

.

**Example: **`'V0',[1 0.5;1 0.5]`

**Data Types: **`double`

`NaN`

s indicate missing values.`infer`

removes missing values. The software merges the presample data (`E0`

and`V0`

) separately from the input response data (`Y`

), and then uses list-wise deletion to remove any rows containing at least one`NaN`

. Removing`NaN`

s in the data reduces the sample size. Removing missing values can also create irregular time series.`infer`

assumes that you synchronize presample data such that the latest observation of each presample series occurs simultaneously.If you do not specify

`E0`

and`V0`

, then`infer`

derives the necessary presample observations from the unconditional, or long-run, variance of the offset-adjusted response process.For all conditional variance models,

`V0`

is the sample average of the squared disturbances of the offset-adjusted response data`Y`

.For GARCH(

*P*,*Q*) and GJR(*P*,*Q*) models,`E0`

is the square root of the average squared value of the offset-adjusted response series`Y`

.For EGARCH(

*P*,*Q*) models,`E0`

is`0`

.

These specifications minimize initial transient effects.

`V`

— Conditional variancesnumeric column vector | numeric matrix

Conditional variances inferred from the response data `Y`

,
returned as a numeric column vector or matrix.

The dimensions of `V`

and `Y`

are
equivalent. If `Y`

is a matrix, then the columns
of `V`

are the inferred conditional variance paths
corresponding to the columns of `Y`

.

Rows of `V`

are periods corresponding to the
periodicity of `Y`

.

`logL`

— Loglikelihood objective function valuesscalar | numeric vector
