### Re: Forecast evaluation output

Perhaps I'm missing something in the previous topic. Here´s an example to explain my problem: Series a = actual series Series f = forecast of a series fpe = (f-a)/a series ape = (a-a(-1))/a genr sq_fpe = (fpe)^2 genr sq_ape = (ape)^2 scalar fpe2 = @sum(sq_fpe) scalar ape2 = @sum(sq_ape) RMSE_fpe = @...

Hi! I use the forecast evaluation "fcasteval" but the tabel is puzzling. In the output table showing evaluation statistics there is no constant relationship between RMSE and TheilU2. I use the following command where "gr_f" contains around 50 forecasts for PC_GDP. (I use Eviews10...
