Timberlake Consultants

The Practice of Econometrics with EViews 14-17 July 2014, New York, USA

(Timberlake's description...)

This course provides a review and practical guide to several major and popular econometric methodologies used in time-series and panel data analysis. The objective is to provide a practical and systematic approach to econometric modelling and make sense of the vast amount of available econometric techniques. Each methodology discussed is illustrated with real data examples in EViews.

Instructor: Dr Paul Turner, Loughborough University.

EViews Programming: The Bare Essentials 18th July, New York, USA

(Timberlake's description...)

EViews is most renowned for being user friendly and easy to use for complex model computations. Nonetheless, limiting yourself to the pre-drafted codes, which are frequently difficult to de-code, is a limitation for many researchers using the most recent methods in the economics, econometrics, statistics or finance literature. This course will go beyond the standard build-in functions of EViews and teach you how to programme complex routines, or automate repetitive tasks for your research projects.

Examples of methods where EViews programming is particularly interesting are Structural VARs, Bayesian VARs, GVARs, FAVARs, GARCH, Regime switching models, Dynamic factor and non-linear models or even DSGE models. This one-day training course is suitable for both EViews programming beginners, as well as more experienced users. The course is very practical and hands-on, and participants are welcome to contribute with their own models, routines, and research-specific questions. All example codes and completed exercises will be handed to the participants at the end of the course.

Instructor: Dr Paul Turner, Loughborough University.

Modelling & Forecasting Energy Markets with EViews, 29-30 September 2014, in London, UK

(Timberlake's description...)

Following a wave of deregulation in several countries and sectors over the past two decades, energy prices are now determined in a complex way by the interaction between supply and demand. Due to the asyncronicity between the two, modelling and predicting energy prices (and their volatility) is an important challenge. Several techniques have been proposed, and often used simultaneously: typically employed methodologies include mean reverting atheoretical models (such as ARMA), vector autoregressions and vector error correction models (VAR and VECM respectively), and models in the GARCH family in order to model and predict the volatility of energy prices.

The course serves two main purposes:

  • To provide a review with practical guidelines to the aforementioned models and see them in action with real data;
  • To illustrate how such models can be implemented using EViews.

Instructor: Dr. Ekaterina Ipatova & Dr. Lorenzo Trapani of Cass Business School, City University London.
