    We examine the performance of six estimators of the power-law cross-correlations -- the detrended cross-correlation analysis, the detrending moving-average cross-correlation analysis, the height cross-correlation analysis, the averaged periodogram estimator, the cross-periodogram estimator and the local cross-Whittle estimator -- under heavy-tailed distributions. The selection of estimators allows to separate these into the time and frequency domain estimators. By varying the characteristic exponent of the $\alpha$-stable distributions which controls the tails behavior, we report several interesting findings. First, the frequency domain estimators are practically unaffected by heavy tails bias-wise. Second, the time domain estimators are upward biased for heavy tails but they have lower estimator variance than the other group for short series. Third, specific estimators are more appropriate depending on distributional properties and length of the analyzed series. In addition, we provide a discussion of implications of these results for empirical applications as well as theoretical explanations. read more...

    Regime-switching models, in particular Hidden Markov Models (HMMs) where the switching is driven by an unobservable Markov chain, are widely-used in financial applications, due to their tractability and good econometric properties. In this work we consider HMMs in continuous time with both constant and switching volatility. In the continuous-time model with switching volatility the underlying Markov chain could be observed due to this stochastic volatility, and no estimation (filtering) of it is needed (in theory), while in the discretized model or the model with constant volatility one has to filter for the underlying Markov chain. The motivations for continuous-time models are explicit computations in finance. To have a realistic model with unobservable Markov chain in continuous time and good econometric properties we introduce a regime-switching model where the volatility depends on the filter for the underlying chain and state the filtering equations. We prove an approximation result for a fixed information filtration and further motivate the model by considering social learning arguments. We analyze its relation to the switching volatility model and present a convergence result for the discretized model. We then illustrate its econometric properties by considering numerical simulations. read more...

    Investments and free flow of capital are essential for Europe's growth. However, the EU's capital markets are still underdeveloped and fragmented. Therefore, the European Commission adopted an Action plan on "Capital Markets Union" in 2015 aiming to create a true single market for capitals in Europe. The EESC calls for Europe to better mobilise capital and channel it to companies, infrastructures and sustainable projects that will create jobs and growth.read more...
