Missing values in LOGL series under Bivariate GARCH
Hi all,
I am estimating Dynamic Conditional Correlation under Bivariate GARCH in Eviews5. I could not find the DCC output as it is showing "there are missing values in the LOGL series". What could be the possible reason. Though there are already discussion of this type in the forum, I could not clarify myself. I would be grateful, if anybody helps me out.
Thanks and regards
Atish

Re: Missing values in LOGL series under Bivariate GARCH
Although posting your workfile would be much better for us to understand the problem, I think you probably forgot assigning initial values to some series and/or adjusting the sample period accordingly.

Re: Missing values in LOGL series under Bivariate GARCH
Thank you very much. What are the criteria to be considered in giving the initial values.
As you suggested, I am attaching the workfile soon.

Re: Missing values in LOGL series under Bivariate GARCH
By "assigning initial values", I mean the first few values of a series in the sample. If you have a dynamic equation in your model, then your estimation cannot begin until you supply the initial values. For instance, if you have a variable that depends on its own (or on some other variables') lags, then you should specify as many initial values as the number of lags beforehand. In order to do that, you should adjust your sample (e.g. smpl 1 1) and then assign the initial value (e.g. y = 0). Do not forget to reset your sample period after you specified the initial values (e.g. smpl @all).

Re: Missing values in LOGL series under Bivariate GARCH
Hi ,
Find attached the workfile where I was trying to get Dynamic Conditional Correlation under Bivariate GARCH. As I had mention earlier I am getting error message "Missing values in LOGL series in current observation".
Kindly let me know my mistakes and if possible give me the detailed guidelines.

Re: Missing values in LOGL series under Bivariate GARCH
This workfile seems to be generated by a program code. In order to correctly identify the problem, the code (if there is one) is needed as well. However, it seems the estimation sample covers only the first observation, which may be the cause. You may have forgotten to adjust your sample before running the estimation. If you have initialized all the variables properly, then the estimation should start right after the initialization period (e.g. smpl @first+1 @last).

Re: Missing values in LOGL series under Bivariate GARCH
As I mentioned before, your problem is due to sample adjustment. I guess the dating of the original workfile (i.e. daily) is different from the one you uploaded here (i.e. integer). Anyway, just adjust your sample object to begin with the second observation and declare it just before the estimation:
You have to set up a System object to estimate a multivariate GARCH model in EViews (as of version 6.0). I created one for Diagonal VECH estimation and saved it as "sys01" into your workfile. See the attached file and the manual for details...
Code: Select all
sample s1 2 2261
...
...
smpl s1
...
...
smpl @all 'do not forget to adjust your sample

Re: Missing values in LOGL series under Bivariate GARCH
Hi,
I worked on the edited workfile which you had sent to me. Herewith, I am attaching the DCC result. Kindly let me know if it is correct.
I also do not exactly know how to get the correlation coefficienct from the output. This is for the first time I am computing DCC.
It would be of great help if you could guide me in this regard.
Thanks and regards

Re: Missing values in LOGL series under Bivariate GARCH
Changing the initial values of coefficient vector T might work. The variable you are looking for is already saved in your workfile under the name rho12.
However, I am really not sure if the code is correct and works properly. I have some doubts regarding the loglikelihood specification. The variables used in the estimation are covariances instead of correlations. Besides, there should be another coefficient to be estimated (i.e. the scalar named corr12). So, at this point, I think it would be better for you to discuss it with the original author of the code or write your own from the scratch.

Re: Missing values in LOGL series under Bivariate GARCH
Hi
Thanks a lot for the suggestation. It works after changing the initial values. But, the correlation pattern also changes. Is there any specific criteria to give the initial values of the coefficients and Pi? Further, Can you please let me know  how to set up a System object to estimate a multivariate GARCH model e.g Diagonal VECH or BEKK.
With best regards

Re: Missing values in LOGL series under Bivariate GARCH
Initial values are important only because they ease the convergence especially for nonlinear estimations and help avoid local optima. Whatever initial values you supply, the estimation should yield the same result if the solution is global optimum. Therefore, even if you find a better way to assign initial values, you should still try different values.
You should go "Object/New Object/System" to set up a system object and select the "ARCHConditional Heteroskedasticity" for multivariate ARCH modeling. I've already uploaded a sample workfile in the 8th post of this thread.

HI!
which is the method to change the initial values (t(1) and t(2))?
