Abstract

This study analyses the effects of mixed sampling on Granger causality, where both temporal aggregation and systematic sampling filters are used in the same model. From a theoretical perspective, it derives a condition under which mixed sampling induces spurious Granger causality in a bivariate non-cointegrated setup. It finds that mixed sampling does not induce feedback causal distortion if causality runs from a stationary stock variable to either a stationary or a non-stationary flow variable. In all other cases, it induces a spurious bi-directional feedback Granger causality from a unidirectional causal relationship. An empirical exercise on the causality between the cryptocurrencies of Bitcoin and Ethereum illustrates the usefulness of the results
