These two opposing patterns are responsible for the relatively stable behavior of the variance ratios over the entire sample period. 5 are based on nominal stock returns, it is apparent that virtually the same results would obtain with real or excess returns. Since the volatility of weekly nominal returns is so much larger than that of the inflation and Treasury-bill rates, the use of nominal, real, or excess returns in volatility-based tests will yield practically identical inferences. Size-Sorted Portfolios The fact that RW3 is rejected by the equal-weighted index but not by the value-weighted index suggests that market capitalization or size may play a role in the behavior of the variance ratios.

The Predictability of Asset Returns returns. For example, ~ ( 4 ) ~ ( 2 ) = 1 . 4 2 / 1 . 2 0 = 1 . 1 8 which , implies that 2week returns have a first-order autocorrelation coefficient of approximately 18%. 5 shows that the value-weighted index behaves quite differently. 04 for q=8. Moreover, the test statistics @* ( q ) are all statistically insignificant, hence RW3 cannot be rejected for any q. The subsample results show that during the first half of the sample period, the variance ratios for the value-weighted index d o increase with q (implying positive serial correlation for multiperiod returns), but during the second half of the sample, the variance ratios decline with q (implying negative serial correlation for multiperiod returns).

There are fewer nonoverlapping longhorizon returns for a given time span, so sampling errors are generally l5 Although this restriction on the fourth cross-moments of ct may seem somewhat unintuitive, it is satisfied for any process with independent increments (regardless of heterogeneity) and also for linear Gaussian ARCH processes. 41). 43), it is conceptually straightforward and may readily be formed along the lines of Newey and West (1987). An even more general (and possibly more exact) sampling theory for the variance ratios may be obtained using the results of Dufour (1981) and Dufour and Roy (1985).
