dc.description.abstractWe introduce a set of new Value-at-Risk independence backtests by establishing a connection between the independence property of Value-at-Risk forecasts and the extremal index, a general measure of extremal clustering of stationary sequences. We introduce a sequence of relative excess returns whose extremal index has to be estimated. We compare our backtest to both popular and recent competitors using Monte-Carlo simulations and find considerable power in many scenarios. In an applied section we perform realistic out-of-sample forecasts with common forecasting models and discuss advantages and pitfalls of our approach.en
