### Re: Bayesian VAR IRF - standard errors

As an example, I use this code to try and figure out the IRG:

var5.impulse(12, m, smat=myownimpulse, imp=chol) y x @y @x

but it continually gives me "error in specification of innovations or responses."

Is there something I'm missing?

### Bayesian VAR IRF - standard errors

Hi, I'm doing some work with Bayesian VARs and I would like the impulse response function to include at least 1 if not 2 SD standard errors. I know that EViews doesn't support it at this time, but I also know that there should be a way to save the S.E.s as a matrix and do it manually. For the life o...

### Re: Sign Restricted VAR

dakila wrote:No. You cannot interpret like that. First define the shock by the sign restriction, then interpret impulse response function of Y and X as the effect of that shock.

That makes perfect sense. Thanks for the clarification, it is all clear now.

### Re: Sign Restricted VAR

I have a basic and very silly question about interpreting the impulse response graphs that come as the output from the srvar command. When doing a standard VAR, it gives us graphs which explicitly state the effect of endogenous x on y... however, srvar just gives graphs with "impulse response o...

### IV Poisson

Does EViews allow for an instrumental variables approach to Poisson (count model) regressions? Stata has ivpoisson, is there something similar available within the EViews space?

### Re: MIDAS - lower to higher

Gareth, Thanks for the quick reply, but isn't there a whole class of literature that relates stock market volatility (i.e. high-frequency changes) to slower-moving macroeconomic variables? Engle et al. (2009, available at https://archive.nyu.edu/bitstream/2451/27889/2/wpa08043.pdf) is the pioneer in...

### MIDAS - lower to higher

Hi all, I purchased EViews 9.5 specifically because it had MIDAS capabilities, but I've run into a snag. I have a high-frequency dependent variable (either daily or monthly, depending on how I choose to use it) and lower-frequency independent variables (quarterly and annual). Does EViews allow for M...

### Basic ARCH/GARCH question

Hi all, I've used ARCH modeling before in Matlab and G@RCH, but am a complete newbie to it in eviews. I have a dataset that is basically a highly unbalanced dated panel, with monthly data for 25 countries with different starting dates for each country's data series (i.e. financial risk indicators ar...

### Fixed effects differencing

Hi all, is there an easy way to do a fixed-effects specification in e-views using differencing, either first differences or "de-meaning"? I have time-series data for one country across a series of variables and want to compare the influence of one variable (labor legislation) on unemployme...

### Importing pool data

Hi, I thought I was a savvy eviews user but I'm having a devil of a time with a pool data set-up. I have data on 66 countries from 1989-2008 on a variety of topics, including bank credit. I open the foreign data (excel) as workfile, set-up the pool object using the country names as identifiers, impo...

### Re: principal components - correlation matrix?

ok, how do I get those 7 principle components in a usable form to be included in a group object though? Basically, I use the command after opening the 21 variables as a group to "view/principal components," input my specifications, and then it spits out the list of PCs. How do I get that o...

### principal components - correlation matrix?

Hi, I'm using eviews 7 and am using a principal components analysis on time series, coded data. I have successfully extracted PCs using eviews, and have narrowed down the components that I want to use based on their eigenvalues. However, I want to get a correlation matrix of correlations between the...
