Re: Panel or Pool?

Check to see if the sector variable has NAs.

Look at the @expand command for controlling for multiple sectors.

Re: Fred Search

Thanks. I'll do that. In what will not surprise you, trying it instantly gave an EViews bug. (I should explain to the casual reader that EViews is programmed to do weird things to me. No one else ever has a problem.)

I know this isn't exactly an EViews bug, but it's annoying. Maybe you could goose the FRBStL folks?

Re: Question about ARMA forecasting

Thanks Glenn. I am now getting the same forecasts that you report. Despite having gotten something different 6 times before I posted.

Question about ARMA forecasting

I have a dumb question about dynamic versus static forecasting. I have estimated the following equation from 1953 through 2018 ls spreaddemeaned ar(1) ar(2) ma(1) If I forecast for 2019 from the equation using dynamic forecasting I get all zeros. If I forecast using structural forecasting I get a ze...

Re: CES function estimation using NLS

You can also replace the coefficient c(i) with exp(c(i)). That guarantees that exp(c(i)) will be positive.

Re: Panel data integrated of order 0

Integrated of order zero means it's not integrated.

Re: chi-square Likelihood ratio test (restricted & unrestricted model)

The log likelihood statistics are displayed in the lower panel. Just do the calculation by hand.

Re: How I command Eviews not to estimate coefficient in front of variable X

The difference in R^2 is because you are changing the variance of the dependent variable. Note that the coefficients, t-statistics, etc., are the same.

Re: How I command Eviews not to estimate coefficient in front of variable X

Hello, You can also use an explicit equation specification to control which coefficients are estimated, e.g., industry_excess_return = c(1) * (1-betamarketexcess) + c(2) * Betafs + betamarketexcess*MARKET_EXCESS_RETURN + Betafs*fswhole Matt's solution is better, as it works easily even for a more c...

Re: how to store Slopes to run further equation

You will find the coefficients are automatically stored in the C vector. You can also find them in EQ06Whole.@coefs
