Penalized Adaptive Method in Forecasting with Large Information Set and Structure Change
Härdle, Wolfgang K.
In the present paper we propose a new method, the Penalized Adaptive Method (PAM), for a data driven detection of structure changes in sparse linear models. The method is able to allocate the longest homogeneous intervals over the data sample and simultaneously choose the most proper variables with help of penalized regression models. The method is simple yet exible and can be safely applied in high-dimensional cases with different sources of parameter changes. Comparing with the adaptive method in linear models, its combination with dimension reduction yields a method which selects proper signi cant variables and detects structure breaks while steadily reduces the forecast error in high-dimensional data. When applying PAM to bond risk premia modelling, the locally selected variables and their estimated coeffcient loadings identified in the longest stable subsamples over time align with the true structure changes observed throughout the market.
