Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the past few decades, thanks to the popularity of techniques such as simultaneous equations and Vector Autoregressive (VAR) models, macroeconometric analysis has become a standard tool to analyse the economies and policies of nations. This Special Issue welcomes contributions pertaining to theoretical and/or applied issues in time series analysis, especially as they are related to novel macroeconometric and financial applications, broadly defined. We are particularly interested in papers that investigate recent macro empirical issues or develop methods related to the proposition, computation, estimation, and forecasting of econometric models. Macro methods developed in econometrics and other relevant fields have been the backbone used to resolve essential issues in international finance, macroeconomics, and risk management, among a wide range of other areas. The classic tools, such as the VAR model, are still popular among recent studies, and new ones are constantly being developed to analyse new research questions or revisit important empirical topics. The aim of this Special Issue is to contribute to what has been done empirically/theoretically and/or offer new perspectives on such studies and related ones. Some typical topics include but limited to:

  • Macroeconomics
  • Macroeconometrics
  • International finance
  • International trading
  • Financial time series
  • Point and density forecasts
  • Computation
  • Simulation
  • Estimation
  • Dynamic risk and quantile models
  • Realized measures
  • Macro business analytics

Interaction of fiscal and monetary policy is crucial for macroeconomic stability, especially for an economy with downward pressure as well as a tightened space for macro policy, like China. In this paper, we use a time-varying-parameter (TVP-VAR) model to study Chinese fiscal–monetary interaction and divide it into three periods. We claim that China went through a monetary dominant regime from 1996Q to 2017Q4 since the response of CPI to a fiscal expansion was negative in the short run and about zero in the long run, while the monetary expansion had positive effects on CPI. During this period, the response of government spending and money supply to each other’s shock had the same sign, indicating that the two policies acted as complements. However, we argue that 2008Q4 was a turning point that divided this period into two different periods. The response level of M2 growth rate to a fiscal expansion kept rising from 1996Q1 to 2008Q4, indicating the central bank’s increasingly active cooperation with fiscal policy, while it decreased from 2009Q1 to 2017Q4. Since 2018Q1, the economy has been going through a fiscal dominant regime in that the response of GDP growth rate and CPI to the fiscal expansion has sharply increased. We also argue that the relative change of the role between the two policies should be mainly attributed to the variation in the fiscal authority’s characteristics because fiscal response to a monetary shock has remained at a similar level the whole time, even if there have been changes in the characteristics of the central bank.

Forecasting High-Dimensional Financial Functional Time Series: An Application to Constituent Stocks in Dow Jones Index

Financial data (e.g., intraday share prices) are recorded almost continuously and thus take the form of a series of curves over the trading days. Those sequentially collected curves can be viewed as functional time series. When we have a large number of highly correlated shares, their intraday prices can be viewed as high-dimensional functional time series (HDFTS). In this paper, we propose a new approach to forecasting multiple financial functional time series that are highly correlated. The difficulty of forecasting high-dimensional functional time series lies in the “curse of dimensionality.” What complicates this problem is modeling the autocorrelation in the price curves and the comovement of multiple share prices simultaneously. To address these issues, we apply a matrix factor model to reduce the dimension. The matrix structure is maintained, as information contains in rows and columns of a matrix are interrelated. An application to the constituent stocks in the Dow Jones index shows that our approach can improve both dimension reduction and forecasting results when compared with various existing methods.
