Abstract

In statistical modeling contexts, the use of one-step-ahead prediction errors for testing hypotheses on the forecasting ability of an assumed model has been widely considered. Quite often, the testing procedure requires independence in a sequence of recursive standardized prediction errors, which cannot always be readily deduced particularly in the case of econometric modeling. In this paper, the results of a series of Monte Carlo simulations reveal that independence can be assumed to hold.
