Re: system non-linear least squares

Yes. It's pretty easy. You define an EViews object called a System and then push the estimate button.

Re: system non-linear least squares

The ls command does single equation nonlinear. System is used for systems of nonlinear equations.

Re: Force automatic Eviews update if available

We all have admin rights. I was hoping there was a command I could run as a programmed task every Monday that would check if there is a new version and install it if necessary unattended. The built-in update facility almost does that. It automatically checks for an update on launch and then asks if...

Re: Force automatic Eviews update if available

So EViews can be set to check for the latest version for the OP without intervention, but if they want to install the updates it will require manual intervention (as it should with no administrator rights.)

Re: Force automatic Eviews update if available

If you don't have admin rights, what happens if EViews is set to Options/EViews Auto-Update from web/Check for updates automatically?

If the update fails due to no admin rights, the user would still be signaled that an update is available, no?

Re: The EViews workfile - links to PDFs, URLs or Word documents

You can add pretty much any text you want to an object or workfile label. Clicking won't work, but it can be copied and pasted into a browser. And, of course, you can make an object that just holds text.

Re: How do I estimate Newey West Standard Errors for a VAR in Eviews?

You can run your tests in the ols regression. I don't think there is a way to get them back into the VAR.

But let me point out that we usually put enough lags in a VAR that there isn't any serial correlation left, which is the main reason for using Newey-West standard errors.

Re: How do I estimate Newey West Standard Errors for a VAR in Eviews?

Since a VAR is just a set of ols regressions, you can just run each of the regressions and choose Newey-West standard errors. But you'll miss out on all the juicy VAR goodness, like impulse responses First you run using the VAR object. That gets you the juicy stuff. Then run OLS to get the standard...

Re: Forecasting from a System

A VAR only uses lags on the right. It uses these to generate the current value, which then becomes the required lag the following period. In you model, you need to provide data for all the exogenous right hand side variables.

Really lousy clipping job

I attach two graphs. One is from EViews; the other is from Stata I believe (I just have a picture.) The EViews version does a really lousy job in that it clips out the circles that would overlap the vertical axis. temp.png Clipboard01.png Maybe some special tuning was done to the second. I didn't ma...

Re: Changing single data point in time series

There is probably a more elegant way, but how about

Code: Select all

smpl 2003Q1 2003Q2
N025VRM2 = 1

Re: forecasting

Number of lags here means to use many lags, For example 3 would mean using x(-1) x(-2) and x(-3)

switchreg small thing

If you estimate a least squares equation, the equation remembers the entry in the equation specification field when you hit the Estimate button. Switchreg doesn't remember the entry.
