Re: st: testing for optimal lag in garch
Testing several models can be done sequentially
with the reduction of the arch(1/3) garch(1/3) maximum lag length. But
there is no step down procedure. Also, with such nonlinear models,
one needs to be careful about overparameterizing
them, lest your model does not converge.
