GARCH Hedge Ratio Using BEKK
Does anyone know how to compute the time varying hedge ratio when the estimates are derived from running the GARCH system?

does anyone know whether there is a way of estimating a multivariate GARCHM in EViews 6?

EViews 6 doesn't support ARCHinmean for multivariate ARCH models. You can roll your own ARCHinmean by following the steps below:
1) estimating a GARCH model first without conditional variance in the mean equation
2) generate the conditional variance
3) next create another GARCH system, this time place the conditional variance terms from the first system in the mean equations
4) estimate this system
5) generate the conditional variance with the same name as the first time
6) repeat 4) and 5) until no improvement in model criteria (log likelihood, AIC, etc.)
The above method is a consistent estimator of ARCHM models.
Here is an example program where y1 and y2 are the two depend variables, but you can do this interactively by hand following the exact same steps:
Code: Select all
' estimate a GARCH model
system sys01
sys01.append y1=c(1)
sys01.append y2=c(2)
sys01.ARCH @DIAGVECH C(INDEF) ARCH(1,INDEF) GARCH(1,INDEF)
sys01.makegarch
' estimate a GARCH model with garchinmean terms
system sys02
sys02.append y1=c(1) + c(3)*garch_01 + c(4)*garch_01_02
sys02.append y2=c(2) + c(3)*garch_01 + c(5)*garch_01_02
sys02.ARCH @DIAGVECH C(INDEF) ARCH(1,INDEF) GARCH(1,INDEF)
sys02.makegarch
' set convergence criteria
!conv = 0.01
scalar lk = 0
' continue to estimate if difference between successive estimations is greater than !conv
while (abs(sys02.@logllk) >!conv)
sys02.ARCH @DIAGVECH C(INDEF) ARCH(1,INDEF) GARCH(1,INDEF)
lk=sys02.@logl
sys02.makegarch
wend

Excellent tip! thank you! and it is actually much easier in practise than it sounds!

On a second thought this will create the generated regressors problem!!!
