HELP! Calculate Monthly Simple Return

Postby Catsteckler » Thu Nov 19, 2020 9:12 am

I am new to Eviews and have an assignment to calculate the monthly simple return of the S&P500. I have no idea where to begin. I have imported the data which my instructor provided but am unsure how to do any calculations.

I'd hope your instructor would direct you to resources for getting started with EViews. I suggest you review the EViews Fundamentals section of the EViews documentation, in particular the Working with Data subsection. You might also want to explore the EViews Illustrated primer.
