Hi Tirthankar

Many thanks for the info.

Yes, I checked the PACF of  square of the prices to see if there is
heteroskedasticity on prices or not. Actually I am working on prices,
"the returns" is just a way to mention it, sorry about this confusion.
I also use LM test to test for ARCH effects

My model selection and specifications:
-I tried to types of mean equation
 1):  I use VAR for the mean equation after checking for lag length
based on AIC.  It is VAR(1) based on AIC
 2) I use ARIMA for each mean equation .

- For the volatility equation, I tried from GARCH (5,5) to GARCH
(1,1), I even tried to change order of GARCH terms following the
significant in PACF of square residuals.

In addition to checking PACF, I sometimes use the Box-Ljung type
portmanteau tests and LM test but the test always reject the null
hypothesis of homoskedasticity.

Thank you for the links. I am reading it now.
