2 in Chapter 12), a rejection of the random walk hypothesis because of heteroskedasticitywould not be of much interest. Therefore, we seek a test for RW3. As long as returns are uncorrelated, even in the presence of heteroskedasticity the variance ratio must still approach unity as the number of observations increases without bound, for the variance of the sum of uncorrelated increments must still equal the sum of the variances. However, the asymptotic variance of the variance ratios will clearly depend on the type and degree of heteroskedasticity present.

The Predictability of Asset Returns returns. For example, ~ ( 4 ) ~ ( 2 ) = 1 . 4 2 / 1 . 2 0 = 1 . 1 8 which , implies that 2week returns have a first-order autocorrelation coefficient of approximately 18%. 5 shows that the value-weighted index behaves quite differently. 04 for q=8. Moreover, the test statistics @* ( q ) are all statistically insignificant, hence RW3 cannot be rejected for any q. The subsample results show that during the first half of the sample period, the variance ratios for the value-weighted index d o increase with q (implying positive serial correlation for multiperiod returns), but during the second half of the sample, the variance ratios decline with q (implying negative serial correlation for multiperiod returns).

An example of such a process is a fractionally differenced process (1 - L ) % ~ = ql, where ql is white noise. 5 and Lo (1991) for further discussion. Predictabilityin asset returns is a very broad and active research topic, and it is impossible to provide a complete survey of this vast literature in just a few pages. 24 We hope to give readers a sense for the empirical relevance of predictability in recent equity markets by applying the tests developed in the earlier sections to stock indexes and individual stock returns using daily and weekly data from 1962 to 1994 and monthly data from 1926 to 1994.
