I am using Eviews 8.1 but am collaborating with someone using Eviews 7. I cannot open workfiles coming from the latter version, Eviews either crashes or the following error message "internal error 504 504" appears.

Is this a common bug? Any suggestions what to do about that?

### Re: GetMacroData

and

How involed would it be to upgrade the add-in so that one could also choose the unit of the time series? e.g. considering again industrial production, one is mostly interested in the (compounded) change

and not in the index itself.

### Re: GetMacroData

Hey. I find this add-in very useful for directly downloading specific data series. The documentation mentions that if data is copyrighted, download wouldn't work. It mentions Moodys corporate bond yield as an example. I was wondering how to find (before trying out) which series are copyrighted? I di...

### DM-test : saving the asymptotic variance

Hello. I'm using Eviews7. I want to calculate the Diebold Mariano test to evaluate forecasting performances. To calculate the test statistic, I need an estimate of the asymptotic variance of the loss differential series. I though I could just use the .lvar from my series object. However, I didn't fi...

### Re: quasi MLE standard errors

How can I get numeric derivatives of my expression for the conditional variance? Is there any built-in function? I didn't find anything in the manual.

### Re: quasi MLE standard errors

thats for the gradients of the likelihood, right?

However, the formula to calculate the B&W errors uses also gradients of the conditional variance process with respect to the parameters.

If Eviews internally uses this formula, how does it get those derivatives?

### Re: quasi MLE standard errors

Unfortunately, I am still struggeling with computing robust standard errors. The formula given in B&W uses first derivatives of the conditional variance wrt to the parameters. In my case, analytical derivatives are very tricky to program, so I was wondering whether there is anything built-in, to...

### Re: quasi MLE standard errors

Hello. I had a look at the B&W paper. They derive an expresson for an estimator for the B&W errors which requires no second derivatives. Could you tell me if Eviews internally uses this formula with first derivatives normally calculate the B&W errors, that is when estimating an GARCH equ...

### Re: quasi MLE standard errors

Thank you for your replies. I didn't look at the original paper yet, but I found the formula in hamiltons time series analysis. Could you tell me, how EViews calculates the robust standard errors when estimating GARCH in an equation object? That would help me a lot. Basically, I just want to replica...

### Re: quasi MLE standard errors

Thank you.

Well, the formula I found for calculating the QMLE covariance estimator is: T^{-1} ( I_1 * I_2^{-1} * I_1 )^{-1},

where I_1 is the outer product of the gradient vector with itself,

and I_2 is the negative Hessin Matrix evaluated at the parameters.

Is there any way to compute the Hessian?

### quasi MLE standard errors

Hey. I'm using Eviews7. I am estimating a GARCH model using a likelihood approach, i.e. using a LoglObject. I want to construct robust t-stats by using the Bollerslev-Woolridge estimator for the standard errors. Since I didn't find it already implemented, I'd like to calculate those "by hand&qu...

### loop of program run

Hello, I'm using Eviews 7. I'm not sure whether this has already been discussed, but haven't found anything yet in the forum. I wrote a program which takes different arguments and takes a long time to run through. What I would like to do, is to let the program run with different arguments, one after...

Hello, I just stumbled across the range of add-ons provided for eviews7. For what object is this add-on intended? I'm estimating a specific garch -model by MLE, i.e. using a LOGL object and would like to estimated robust t-stats with HAC standard errors. Is this add-on applicable for my case? Thanks...
