Re: Proc/Make Graph in Model (EViews 8)

Thanks very much for your reply, Chris. 1. Sample: I take your point, but I still think it would be more "natural" for the graphs just to default to the "Sample (adjusted): " shown in the Model after solving. Your aproach would require an adjustment each time that "Sample (a...

Proc/Make Graph in Model (EViews 8)

When using "Proc/Make Graph" in a Model, the "Sample for Graph" defaults to the entire range of the Workfile. Since most models do not solve over the whole range, it would be nice if the default were to be the range over which the model was solved. This would avoid strange-lookin...

"View Unread Posts"

Hello,

Is there any particular reason why there is no "View Unread Posts" section in the Forum (as, for example, in the RATS or Dynare fora)?

If not, it would be helpful to have one.

Regards

Graphs comparing actuals and model scenarios

When a model's solution sample is shorter than the graph sample, the actuals prior/posterior to the solution sample appear in the graph (generated by Proc/Make Graph) in the same colour as the solution values; it would be nice if they could instead appear in the same colour as the other actuals.

Re: Auto regressive distributed lagged models.

For equation 1, it is really very easy to estimate the equations by introducing the various lagged variables. The hard part is in determining the number of lags. There is no "formulaic" answer to that. The "general to specific" approach of the LSE school suggests starting with a ...

Re: Johansen cointegration

You can run the test, but only after transforming the I(2) variable into an I(1) variable by first-differencing it

Re: VECM - Interpretation of Estimates

In principle, the speed of adjustment parameters α(y) (the coefficients on "cointeq1") should be negative and lie between (0, -1). This is because in a VEC model, the point estimate should imply that y(t) converges to the long-run equilibrium relationship – if y is above its long-term valu...

Re: alias in solve

I just ran Gareth's test programme on my copy of EViews 7.2, build 29 Nov 2011 and received the following error message in the Programme Log:
Illegal scenario alias _TEST1 in "DO_ M.SCENARIO(A=TEST1) TEST".

Re: Creating an equation from strings

Thanks very much, Gareth, for catching those silly errors. Also, I had not realised that I needed to use the "@str" syntax. I have corrected and it runs pefectly now.

Creating an equation from strings

Hello, I would like to create a simulation model from equations generated using matrices of coefficients obtained from Matlab through xget, but am unsure of the syntax to use. I naively tried the following ' create model from dr.ghx and dr.ghu model mod1 %eq = " " %eq = %eq + "+"...

Re: Broken BVAR??

I repeated the installation of the new EViews 7.2 29 Nov 2011 build and the 27/07/2011 bvar programme, with the same (negative) results. However, when I then manually pointed the add-in to the new bvar programme (by double-clicking on it in the "manage add-ins" window) it worked... An unre...

Broken BVAR??

When I use the latest EViews 7.2 build (Nov 29 2011) with the (excellent) BVAR add-in in what I assume is its latest version (downloaded 30 Nov 2011, but the "bvar" programme is dated 27/07/2011), nothing happens: no "bvar" spool is produced. By contrast, if I use the "bvar&...
