MIdas Intra-period forecast

Postby vikas.trades25 » Mon Sep 18, 2017 4:10 am

Hi,
I wanted to know if intra-period midas forecasting is implemented in Eviews, like explained in the paper by Armesto et al (2010). The relevant section is eqn 8 in that paper.

I want to forecast a monthly series using a weekly series. Monthly series is available till July 2017 and weekly series till Aug 2017. I would like to obtain the forecasts for the monthly series for each week data in August 2017. Is this possible. Also I would like to get a long history of the weekly estimates of this monthly variable (for e.g the past 5 years). I believe I need to perform MIDAS on an expanding window.

How to do this
