We present an application of the SIML estimation. We used the high-frequency financial data of the Nikkei-225 Futures, which are the major financial products that are traded actively in Japan. We also give the simulation results of SIML estimation in the basic case and consider the hedging problem, which was the original motivation of developing the SIML method.
