Mishkin Test

This thread is about the Mishkin add-in that provides a framework to examine whether the market rationally prices future returns by using the test developed in Mishkin (1983).

The Mishkin Test is a nonlinear maximum likelihood estimation procedure that jointly estimates a linear forecasting equation and a model of market equilibrium pricing.
The add-in will report the LR, Wald, LM test statistics along with the corresponding P-values.

Dears,

Unfortunately, this thread leads to "near singular matrix" with any data. I think you should not restrict the constant to be the same in the two equations.

Thank you

Seems to work for me with the following generated data:

Code: Select all

create u 100
series earnings = nrnd
series returns = nrnd
series acc = nrnd

Then do a test with earnings earnings(-1) returns(-1) and using returns as the return variable, it seems to work.

I didn't notice a slight bug in the command line version of the add-in though, so I've just fixed that and uploaded it. It will only affect the command line version though.

I use Eviews 7. I have already downloaded mishkin add-in. The add-in reports the LR, Wald, LM test statistics along with the corresponding P-values. On the other hand, it doesn't show the estimated coefficients (α1*, b1*, and b2*). In order to get those coefficients what should I do? Do you have Mishkin test code that I can apply and get those coeefficients?
Thank you in advance.

All Add-ins are just EViews programs. You can look at the code by opening the program. By default they are located in your My Documents folder under EViews Add-ins.

Could tell me that how can I find the estimated coefficients (α1*, b1*, and b2*) after using Mishkin add-in. Because the add-in only report the LR, Wald, LM test statistics. Thank you..

My question is how to get estimated coefficients. Coz Mishkin add-in only reports LR, LM and Wald test results. It does not show me the coefficients. thanks..

Correct, the add-in does not do that.

To get those estimated coefficients what should I do? Because I have to report them in my study. Could you show me the way to get those estimated coefficients, please? Thanks.

If there is no solutions for this problem, please let me know. It is a matter of life and death. Thanks..

The only solution is to re-program the add-in yourself.

I am not familiar with the programming. Can anyone help me to deal with this case.
