A note on spurious regressions between stationary series
MetadataShow full item record
This article examines if the convergent t-test suggested by Sun (2004) is able to solve spurious regressions with stationary series. In brief, we find that the convergent t-test does provide better control over size compared to the usual t-test and its Newey-West modification and, in most cases implementing a pre-whitening procedure size is further controlled.
