is the three-stage estimation method of the DCC-GARCH available, the addin has only the 2 step estimation method,

Help is much appreciated,

Could you guys tell me where went wrong? I will really appreciate your help ....

so sad ....

Change your starting sample date from 3rd observation @last
I want to say in program start your sample from 3rd observation to last
It worked for me
