Macroeconomic Density Forecasting & Nowcasting
16th – 18th January 2017
Cass Business School
London, UK

Whether you deal with forecasting at a Central Bank, public institution, bank or consultancy firm; or you use forecasting techniques in your research, this is the perfect course to bring you up to date with the latest methods in the forecasting profession. We begin softly by reviewing some classic time series methods and standard point and density forecasting tools (fan charts), but rapidly turn to the state-of-the-art forecasting methods such as Mixed Frequency Data Sampling (MIDAS), Regime (or Markov) Switching models, and Bayesian forecasting techniques.

The focus will be more on the empirical implementation of the techniques than on their theoretical underpinnings. The techniques will be illustrated with several empirical applications, and then implemented in EViews 9. While experience in forecasting is advantageous, the course is equally suitable for professionals who have just recently began to forecast macroeconomic and financial indicators. We are flexible and the course can easily be accommodated to the level of the participants. Previous knowledge and experience in econometrics is however, essential.

Instructor: Dr. Andrea Carriero

EViews Essentials
7th – 8th February 2017
Online

The course is designed as an introduction to the popular econometric software, EViews. The focus will be on exposing participants to basic modules and structures of EViews that will help users to fully harness the capabilities of the software. With hands-on examples, discussions and in-class exercises, the course will introduce important concepts such as workfiles, objects, databases, graphical and data management capabilities and basic single-equation analysis. After this course, participants will be well prepared to pursue further learning leading to more advanced econometric analyses in areas such as time-series, panel data and other more sophisticated analyses.
