In this paper we examine the parametric test proposed by Henriksson and Merton for evaluating the market timing ability of portfolio managers. Using simulation techniques we show that correction for heteroscedasticity can significantly affect the conclusions. We find that the heteroscedasticity corrections suggested by Hansen and by White are particularly effective.
