Dear All,
Where to get examples of Gretl scripts for different types of analysis?

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.
<script>
open b-g.gdt
garch 1 1 ; Y
series e = $uhat
series h = $h
dataset addobs 10
a0 = $coeff[2]
a1 = $coeff[3]
b1 = $coeff[4]
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
</script>

Sample size and ADF test in gretl and R
by Grzegorz Konat

Hello,
I have a minor question concerning how sample size affects ADF unit root
test results in gretl and other econometric software.
Let me give you an example:
I have a series of T=51, for which ADF test results are all the same in
gretl, R (urca) and JMulTi. Yet when I use a subsample of T=20 (last
twenty observations), test statistics obtained with gretl are
significantly different from those of R and JMulTi (both the latter,
however, produce the same output). Of course, I use the same
deterministic term option and lag lenght for those comparisons.
Is there any particular reason for that situation? Or is it me doing
something wrong?
(I attach data file for those, who'd like to replicate my issue)
Best,
Greg

Re: [Gretl-users] Problem with bootstrap result
by alexkakashi＠libero.it

The Allin method is perfect, I have only changed when there is the error
message.
In my application I have use the following commands to obtain the pseudo-data.
But the bootstrap results are strange. Is it right my script to generate the
pseudo-data?
r=154 ## number of observations
system method=sur
equation Y const Y(-1) Z(-1)
equation X const Y(-1) X(-1) Z(-1)
equation Z const Y(-1) Z(-1)
end system
genr residui=$uhat
genr M=$coeff
## Procedure to obtain the pseudo-data
ysim=Y
xsim=X
zsim=Z
genr A=resample(residui)
loop for i=2..154 --quiet
ysim[i]=M[1]+M[2]*ysim[i-1]+M[3]*zsim[i-1]+A[i-1,1]
xsim[i]=M[4]+M[5]*ysim[i-1]+M[6]*xsim[i-1]+M[7]*zsim[i-1]+A[i-1,2]
zsim[i]=M[8]+M[9]*ysim[i-1]+M[10]*zsim[i-1]+A[i-1,3]

Re: [Gretl-users] Problem with bootstrap result
by alexkakashi＠libero.it

Thanks Ignacio. I know that the single equation can be estimated by OLS. In my
application I have no stationary time series and I work using variables in
levels. I'd like use bootstrap method based on residuals, which are
uncorrelated. I have considered only the equation
1. ols Y const Y(-1) Y(-2) X(-1) X(-2) Z(-1) Z(-2)
I am interested in testing Granger causality from X to Y, so I test this null
hypothesis. Under this hypothesis I estimate the model 1 and save the
coefficients and the residuals u(t). In this way I obtain the pseudo-data Y*
given by
Y*(t) = a + b Y*(t-1) + c Y*(t-1) + d Z(t-1) + e Z(t-2) + u*(t)
where u*(t) are the bootstrap residuals and Z is the original regressor. The
p-
value is small. If I replace every equation of the VAR the p-value is very
large. In my opinion, considering only the first equation, the results are
better than those which replace the VAR because the statistics tests is
large.
In yuor opinion can I work considering only one equation of the VAR in my
bootstrap method?
Best regards
Alessandro

Problem with bootstrap result
by alexkakashi＠libero.it

Dear community of gretl,
I prefer writing a new post about my problem. I'm interested in testing
Granger causality from X to Y in a trivariate VAR. The critical values are
found using bootstrap based on residuals. In the first stage I consider only
the equation
ols Y const Y(-1) Y(-2) X(-1) X(-2) Z(-1) Z(-2)
Under the null hypothesis I replace the series Y using the residuals of this
equation and the coefficient estimated under the null. The test statistics is
large and observing the p-value (small) I reject the null hypothesis of no-
causality.
I have also considered the VAR model and, in the bootstrap method, I have
replace every equation of the VAR. I have used this commands:
r=158 # number of observations
system method=sur
equation Y const Y(-1) Y(-2) X(-1) X(-2) Z(-1) Z(-2)
equation X const Y(-1) Y(-2) X(-1) X(-2) Z(-1) Z(-2)
equation Z const Y(-1) Y(-2) X(-1) X(-2) Z(-1) Z(-2)
end system
genr residui=$uhat
genr M=$coeff
loop for i=3..158 --quiet
ysim[i]=M[1]+M[2]*ysim[i-1]+M[3]*ysim[i-2]+M[4]*zsim[i-1]+M[5]*zsim[i-2]
xsim[i]=M[6]+M[7]*ysim[i-1]+M[8]*ysim[i-2]+M[9]*xsim[i-1]+M[10]*xsim[i-2]+M[11]
*zsim[i-1]+M[12]*zsim[i-2]
zsim[i]=M[13]+M[14]*ysim[i-1]+M[15]*ysim[i-2]+M[16]*xsim[i-1]+M[17]*xsim[i-2]+M
[18]*zsim[i-1]+M[19]*zsim[i-2]
endloop
loop replics --quiet ### BOOTSTRAP
Ysim=ysim
Xsim=xsim
Zsim=zsim
genr A=resample(residui)
loop for i=3..r --quiet
Ysim[i]=ysim[i]+A[i-2,1]
Xsim[i]=ysim[i]+A[i-2,2]
Zsim[i]=ysim[i]+A[i-2,3]
endloop
Calculate the bootstrap test statistics and p-values
......................endloop
There is a strange result when I apply this bootstrap procedure on the VAR. In
fact the statistic test based on observed data is very large, but the bootstrap
p-value
is greater then 0.8 and I do not reject the null hypothesis of Granger non-
causality from X to Y. This results is different from the previuos which use
only the first equation.
The residuals are incorrelated. I don't understant the different between
these p-values. Are there errors in my procedure?
Best regards.

Re: [Gretl-users] CARR model MLE
by Dan Běsoň

Thank you both a lot. I was out of my mind to overlook the +/- thing. Thank you also for the exp() trick, so far I thought the only way to ensure positiveness is to formulate a model for log(Rng).
Best regards,
Daniel

Re: [Gretl-users] Bootstrap VAR models
by alexkakashi＠libero.it

Thanks Stev.
I have used this procedure to study Granger causality from X to Y in a
trivariate VAR:
r=158 ## number of observation
ysim=Y
xsim=X
Zsim=Z
system method=sur
equation Y const Y(-1) Y(-2) Z(-1) Z(-2)
equation X const Y(-1) Y(-2) X(-1) X(-2) Z(-1) Z(-2)
equation Z const Y(-1) Y(-2) X(-1) X(-2) Z(-1) Z(-2)
end system
genr residui=$uhat
genr M=$coeff
loop for i=3..r --quiet
ysim[i]=M[1]+M[2]*ysim[i-1]+M[3]*ysim[i-2]+M[4]*zsim[i-1]+M[5]*zsim[i-2]
xsim[i]=M[6]+M[7]*ysim[i-1]+M[8]*ysim[i-2]+M[9]*xsim[i-1]+M[10]*xsim[i-2]+M[11]
*zsim[i-1]+M[12]*zsim[i-2]
zsim[i]=M[13]+M[14]*ysim[i-1]+M[15]*ysim[i-2]+M[16]*xsim[i-1]+M[17]*xsim[i-2]+M
[18]*zsim[i-1]+M[19]*zsim[i-2]
loop replics --quiet ### BOOTSTRAP
smpl full
Ysim=ysim
Xsim=xsim
Zsim=zsim
genr A=resample(residui)
loop for i=3..r --quiet
Ysim[i]=ysim[i]+A[i-2,1]
Xsim[i]=ysim[i]+A[i-2,2]
Zsim[i]=ysim[i]+A[i-2,3]
endloop
...................endloop
There is a strange result when I apply the bootstrap procedure. In fact the
statistic test based on observed data is very large, but the bootstrap p-value
is greater then 0.8 and I do not reject the null hypothesis of Granger non-
causality from X to Y. The results are different if I work considering only the
equation
equation Y const Y(-1) Y(-2) X(-1) X(-2) Z(-1) Z(-2)
Under the null hypothesis I replace the series Y. In this case the bootstrap p-
value is very small and I reject the null hypothesis of no-causality. I don't
understant the different between these p-values.
Best regards.

CARR model MLE
by Dan Běsoň

Dear fellow users,
I am trying to write a script for MLE estimation of a CARR model, similar to GARCH. It is a MEM model in daily ranges of some instrument, i,e,
Eq. 1: lRng = lambda * epsilon # epsilon is exponentially distributed here, giving the shape of LL
Eq. 2: lambda = a + b*Rng(-1) + c*lambda(-1)
I tried the following code but the algorithm never converges. What should I improve?
Thanks in advance, Daniel
scalar a = 0.1
scalar b = 0.4
scalar c = 0.4
mle ll = -ln(lambda) + Rng/lambda
series lambda = mean(Rng)
series lambda = a + b*Rng(-1) + c*lambda(-1)
params a b c
end mle
