There is no built-in function to do this, but you can compute a
one-step ahead forecast of the variance from the model data, as
hown in the following example script.
garch 1 1 ; Y
series e = $uhat
series h = $h
dataset addobs 10
a0 = $coeff
a1 = $coeff
b1 = $coeff
series hfc = h
# set future errors to their expectation
e = misszero(e)
# forecast the variance
hfc = a0 + a1 * e(-1)^2 + b1 * hfc(-1)
smpl 1970 ;
print e h hfc --byobs
Deal Gretl Community,
I am trying to replicate the examples in Principles of
Econometrics,pg.373, BYD example, using Garch in Gretl (GIG). I was able
to reproduce those result with Lee Adkins scripts but I cant do the same
My questions are:
- what I'm suppose to put in mean and variance regressors list to obtain
the following models:
TGARCG(1,1) and Garch in Mean.
- are there any other manual or examples using GIG gui beside those
found on Ricardo Lucchetti's home page.
Thank you for your help.

An oversight, those values were not getting recorded by
"difftest". That's now fixed in CVS and snapshots.

OK, now in CVS and snapshots you can use any discrete variable,
not just a 0/1 dummy, with gnuplot and the --dummy option.
In the same line of business I've added a --factorized option for
the boxplot command, and enhanced the GUI boxplot options (e.g.,
on right-clicking a variable and selecting Boxplot).
I am currently revising a paper and I hope you could help me with a
small question that is not really gretl specific.
I want to add a table which will show Johansen tests can give
different results in small samples when different parameters are used.
In the table, I just use the trace test results (since this is just to
prove a point) and choose lags 1, 2, and 3. I also use the default
case as well as the --ct option. This results in 6 combinations.
Here is how I proceed:
For a bivariate case, if the trace test rejects c=0 and does not
reject c=1, I report c=1. If it is the other way around, then I report
c=0 as the test result.
As you know, sometimes the results can be contradictory so that c=0
and c=1 are rejected (or not rejected) simultaneously.
My question is that would it be OK to report "inconclusive" in those
cases? Or am I expected to follow another further procedure?
Any help and possible further suggestions are very much appreciated.
By the way, I think it could be useful if we had another gretl mailing
list for general econometrics discussions.

Thanks, I think ;-). But I realise that boxplot --factorized needs
some more work: its output is not as elegant as the boxplot
function you put together a couple of years back. Hopefully we'll
get there soon, but in the meantime I have some exams to set and
