Modeling and Forecasting Time Series Using EViews
The course starts with a refreshment of basic econometric models and inference techniques (linear regression model, OLS, maximum likelihood and testing.)
The fundamentals of econometrics are followed by time series models of macro data and financial returns. We will inparticular study two families of models that are well suited for these data: ARMA and GARCH models.
The course is fully practical. Each theoretical introduction is followed by hands-on training in the computer lab.
No previous knowledge of econometrics or EViews is required.
