As a reminder, EViews Add-ins are additions to the EViews interface or command language written by our users or the EViews development team and released to the public. You can install Add-ins to your EViews by using the Add-ins menu from within EViews, or by visiting the EViews website.

The past few months have seen the release of three new Add-ins: HEGY, Backtest and FAVAR.

Automatic Forecasting of the M3 Data

In a recent post on his excellent Hyndsight blog, Rob Hyndman compared the results of the R forecasting package with those of some commercial automatic forecasting software packages using data from the M3 forecasting competition.

We don’t consider EViews to be an automatic forecasting package, but EViews does include two of the most widely used forecasting techniques; Box-Jenkins ARIMA models, and Error, Trend, Season (ETS) exponential smoothing models, and includes “automatic selection” versions of both techniques, letting EViews decide the best specification for each.

You can view a demonstration of automatic ARIMA forecasting in EViews here:
