Abstract:

By means of Monte Carlo experiments using the weighted bootstrap, we evaluate the size and power properties in small samples of Chow and Denning’s [1] multiple variance ratio test and the automatic variance ratio test of Choi [2]. Our results indicate that the weighted bootstrap tests exhibit desirable size properties and substantially higher power than corresponding conventional tests.
