Evaluating independent spike models

Lindström, Erik LU and Regland, Fredrik (2010) 47th EWGFM meeting In Proceedings of 47th EWGFM meeting p.109-117
Abstract
Markov regime switching models are often used to model energy prices. We have

applied these to six electricity markets. The seasonal variation is corrected for by using the month

ahead forward price as a predictor. This paper extends to the current framework by using Gamma

distributed spikes, which improves the fit for most energy markets. Applications on European

energy markets are provided with good results for most markets.
