Re: Basic Rolling Regression
Hi everyone,
I want to estimate a Random Walk model under a recursive window (expanding). My observations are from 1973M01 to 2014M12, and sum into 504 observartions (from which I want to exclude the first 12 from my sampleI just used them to calculate the inflation rate). I want my first estimation to start at 1978M01, and take into account the observations from 1974M01 until 1977M12. Until now I have made the above:
' set window size
!window = 60
' set step size
!step = 1
' get size of workfile
!length = @obsrange
' declare equation for estimation
equation eq1

%1pere = @otod(@dtoo(%start)+!i+!window) 'end point
'*EDITED

If I want to do the same with a Taylor rule, let's say the following specifications: II* = (inflinfl*)+(output_gapoutput_gap*) , the "*" is for the foreign country, I will have to reestimate the output gap for every new estimation that come as I expand my window. Does anyone know how can I do that?
Thank you for your time!

Re: Basic Rolling Regression
Hi,
I wrote this command in the command window to find rolling coefficients of the regression pca1 c usbe10 ustips10. But unfortunately I couldn't find the results. I ve no basic training in programming language. Please advice. Thanks a lot.
!window = 24
!step = 1
!length = @obsrange
equation eq1
!nrolls = @round((!length!window)/!step)
matrix(3,!nrolls) coefmat
!j=0
!i = 1 to !length!window+1!step step !step
!j=!j+1
smpl @first+!i1 @first+!i+!window2
eq1.ls pca1 c usbe10 ustips10
colplace(coefmat,eq1.@coefs,!j)
next
show coefmat

Re: Basic Rolling Regression
You have to use a program (file>new program) rather than the command window

Re: Basic Rolling Regression
Hi Gareth,
Thanks a lot for such prompt response.
When I run the new program, it says that "Next found outside of loop or IF statement"
Please suggest.

Re: Basic Rolling Regression
Hi everyone.
So I am trying to forecast the volatility of the S&P 500 and S&P 100 and I need to create a in and out of sample forecast using a rolling regression. However this is my first time using EVIEWS and was wondering what I will need to do before conducting the Roll regression.
At this moment in time, I've collected my data and I have imported it into my EVIEWS workbook and made them into logs. What is the next step for me ? what equation do I need to make? what is the basic roll regression code?
Any help would be much appreciated!
Thank you.

Hello , I need some help trying to make this rolling in a 156 data moving window, I need to adjust the start and end point so each regression takes 156 observations , any help is appreciated ,regards

Re: Basic Rolling Regression
The regressions seems not be to be a 156 window. I think I need to set an @first and @last to tell Eviews to make a regression of a moving 156 window.
For example, I woulld like something like
reg1 : 2010m01  2016m01
reg2 : 2010m02  2016m02
reg3 : 2010m03  2016m03
....
....
so the window remains the same, regards

Re: Basic Rolling Regression
Hello Gareth,
Thank you for the code.
I'm interested by running a rolling regression (with one explanatory variable) but for 35 stocks.
I have 35 stocks (Y1,Y2...Y35) and one market index (X).
Is it possible ?
Thank you

Re: Basic Rolling Regression
You'll have to write a loop that loops over the stocks and runs the regression on each.

Re: Basic Rolling Regression
thank you for your reply.
I see how to write a loop that loops over the stocks and runs a simple regression but i don't see how to do it with a rolling regression.
I don't see how to do it.
can you give me a simple example?
