Could you help me solve this question. Many thanks !
The Dow-Jones daily returns for the period 1920-2006 under the normal likelihood show a
raw mean of 0.00020 and standard deviation of 0.01140. Skewness is -0.6673 and kurtosis
29.7454.
(a) Calculate the annual mean and variance.
(b) Calculate the Jarque-Bera statistic and perform the hypothesis test. Write down the
null and alternative hypotheses. Run a 2 test with 2 degrees of freedom. Refer to the
tables given for the chi-square distribution. (N = 19566)
(c) What does the term “normally distributed returns” mean? What do your results say
about non-normality.
