Are there any issues to run a Newey-West time-series regression on a dependent variable that is a probability? What are the biases that I am facing? I can't find anything online that can help me out with this issue.

  • $\begingroup$ I have to be more precise, it is more of a proportion than a probability for my dependent variable where the value can be between 0 and 1 $\endgroup$

For dependent variables distributed continuously between 0 and 1, you'll want to use a beta regression. I don't know what statistical software you are using, but this article should be helpful, especially if you are using R: http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/betareg/vignettes/betareg.pdf

In order to help control for auto-correlation, try including a lagged version of the outcome variable as a predictor in the model. Then you can run a set of diagnostics to see if auto-correlation is still a problem.
