### Simulating an equation in Eviews

Hi everyone,

I am tasked with simulating y(t) = e(t) + .9*e(t-1) with 200 random numbers I generated from excel.

This is obviously an MA(1) equation but what I do not understand how to do is apply the theta value = .9 or how to obtain the e(t-1). Any help would be much appreciated!

Non-normality and collinearity are NOT problems!

Assuming you have the series e

Code: Select all

`smpl 2 @lastseries y = e + .9*e(-1)`
