Sample text

Following [3], we decompose the log-returns time series r = {rt } into an estimated stationary variance-covariance marix and a set of uncorrelated residuals. The filtering procedure followed here is based on the Cholesky factor algorithm, a model-free bootstrapping method described in [8]. It goes through the following steps (where indexes are omitted for clarity): 1. Estimate the covariance matrix Σ = E [r r] of the vector r, as the Toeplitz matrix (that is a matrix which has constant values along all negativesloping diagonals) built upon the autocovariance vector γ; 26 G.

2 Empirical Analysis of Electricity Log-returns The following analysis aims to extend and integrate the evidence presented in [3] on serial correlation patterns, volatility structures, and distributional shapes. Define Pht as the market-clearing price issued on day t, outcome of the auction concerning delivery at hour h of the following day, and pht its natural logarithm. The daily price growth rates, or log-returns, are rht = pht −ph,t−1 ≈ Pht /Ph,t−1 − 1. Looking at Fig. 1 it is clear that price dynamics differ both with respect to the market (NordPool, APX or Powernext) and to the hour they refer to.

Once all of these properties are controlled for, the distributional nature of the underlying statistically independent disturbances can be studied. A more detailed account of our results is the following. First, we find that significant autocorrelation at weekly lags is a robust feature of power auctions when the level of economic activity (and of electricity demand) is high, whereas the degree of persistency is lower during night hours, and more heterogeneous across countries. Second, the conditional standard deviation of price growth is decreasing in the price level in the NordPool and Powernext markets, but this relationship breaks down when price reaches very high levels.
