We can estimate vt using A Ljung-Box test can be used to determine whether  are white noise. The null hypthesis is: H0:rk=0 for k=1…12, where rk is the ACF (autocorrelation function) for vt. The test statistic is: t = ~ c2(12)  if H0 is true.

Therefore the asymmetry is large and highly significant.
