摘要:The principal components estimator of the common factors in high-dimensional approximate factor models can be inconsistent when there is large temporal instability in the factor loadings (Bates et al., 2013). In this paper we test for the stable factor structure against considerable time variation in the factor loadings in the form of martingales, which capture the notion of unstable factor relationship that gradually changes over time. We obtain the asymptotic distribution of the test statistic by deriving the conditions under which the estimation error of the common factors is asymptotically negligible for the test statistic. Monte Carlo simulations show that the proposed test performs well and is more powerful than the tests designed for structural breaks to detect unstable factor relationship. We apply the test to a panel of macroeconomic and financial variables in the UK and find the evidence of unstable factor structure during and after the recent financial crisis.
