monitorStationarity {cointmonitoR} | R Documentation |
This procedure is able to monitor a one-dimensional vector for level or
trend stationarity and returns the corresponding break point, if available.
It is based on parameter estimation on a pre-break "calibration" period
at the beginning of the sample that is known or assumed to be free of
structural change and can be specified exactly via the m
argument
(see Details for further information).
monitorStationarity(x, m = 0.25, trend = FALSE, kernel = c("ba", "pa",
"qs", "tr"), bandwidth = c("and", "nw"), signif.level = 0.05,
return.stats = TRUE, return.input = TRUE, check = TRUE, ...)

The calibration period can be specified by setting the argument m
to the number of its last observation.
The corresponding fraction of the data's length will be calculated
automatically. Alternatively you can set m
directly to the fitting
fraction value. Attention: The calibration period may become smaller than
intended: The last observation is calculated as floor(m * N)
(with N
= length of x
).
The kernel that is used for calculating the long-run variance can be one of the following:
"ba"
: Bartlett kernel
"pa"
: Parzen kernel
"qs"
: Quadratic Spectral kernel
"tr"
: Truncated kernel
