English We propose Indirect Robust Generalized Method of Moments (IRGMM), a simulationbased estimation methodology, to model short-term interest rate processes. The primary advantage of IRGMM relative to classical estimators of the continuous-time short-rate diffusion processes is that it corrects both the errors due to discretization and the errors due to model misspecification. We apply this... Show more…
