**Econ 240 C**Lecture 12**Outline**• Benchmark Forecasts • Project One • Post-Midterm Topics • Distributed Lag Models: Lab 6 • Distributed Lag Models: Lab 7 • Appendix: Moving Averages**Benchmark Forecasts**• “Naïve Forecasts” • Time series is level: use mean • Time series is trended: use trend to forecast, e.g. Lab 2 • Time series is random walk: best forecast for next period is this period • ARMA model forecasts • Also uses the past to extrapolate the future**Post-Midterm Topics**• Distributed lag Models • Exponential smoothing • Intervention models • Autoregressive conditional heteroskedasticity ARCH • Vector autoregression VAR**?**Output Y(t) Dynamic Relationship Input X(t)**Distributed Lag**• Y(t) = c0x(t) + c1x(t-1) + c2x(t-2) + … + resid(t) • Y(t) = c0 x(t) + c1 Z x(t) + c2 Z2 x(t) + … resid(t) • Y(t) = [c0 + c1 Z + c2 Z2 + …] x(t) + resid(t)**Resid(t)**+ Dynamic relationship C(Z) Input X(t) + Output Y(t)**Pre-midterm**Resid(t) + Dynamic relationship C(Z) Input X(t) + Output Y(t)**Dynamic Model Building**• Process • Identification of C(Z) • How many lags? • Which lags • Use cross-correlation function to answer specification of lags • Identification of resid(t) • Resid(t) captures part of y(t) • Use the univariate ARMA model for y(t) as a starting point for modeling resid(t)**Part II: Estimation of Distributed Lag Models**• Why not use simple OLS regression of SP500 on consumer sentiment in levels?**Part II: Estimation of Distributed Lag Models**• Example from Lab 6: The Index of Consumer Sentiment and the Standard & Poors 500 Index • Does consumer sentiment affect the stock market?**Resid(t)**+ Dynamic relationship C(Z) Input X(t) consumer sentiment [c0 + c1 Z + c2 Z2 + …] + Output Y(t) sp500**Regress sp500 on a distributed lag of consumer sentiment**• sp500(t) = c0consen(t) + c1consen(t-1) + c2consen(t-2) + … + resid(t)**Distributed Lag Model of SP500 on Consumer Sentiment**• Why are not the t-statistics more significant**Distributed Lag Model of SP500 on Consumer Sentiment**• Fixup: Taking logarithms is not enough**Correlogram of natural logarithm of the Index**of Consumer Sentiment**Distributed Lag Model of SP500 on Consumer Sentiment**• Fixup: Taking logarithms is not enough • First difference after taking natural logarithm to obtain the fractional change in the Index of Consumer Sentiment**Resid(t)**+ Dynamic relationship C(Z) Input X(t) D lnconsumer sentiment [c0 + c1 Z + c2 Z2 + …] + Output Y(t) D lnsp500**Distributed Lag Model of Fractional Changes in SP500 on**Fractional Changes in Consumer Sentiment • Why does this work?
