For estimating the integrated volatility and covariance by using high frequency data, Kunitomo and Sato (Math Comput Simul 81:1272–1289, 2011; N Am J Econ Finance 26:289–309, 2013) have proposed the separating information maximum likelihood (SIML) method when there are micro-market noises. The SIML estimator has reasonable finite sample properties and asymptotic properties when the sample size is large when the hidden efficient price process follows a Brownian semi-martingale. We shall show that the SIML estimation is useful for estimating the integrated covariance and hedging coefficient when we have round-off errors, micro-market price adjustments and noises, and when the high-frequency data are randomly sampled. The SIML estimation is consistent, asymptotically normal in the stable convergence sense under a set of reasonable assumptions and it has reasonable finite sample properties with these effects.
