When performing the shock decomposition after a successful run of the MCMC (trace plots look good), I get the following error message:
Error using dates (line 178)
The input cannot be interpreted as a date. You should first read the manual!
Error in plot_shock_decomposition (line 184)
initial_date = dates(‘2004’);
Error in shock_decomposition (line 142)
oo_ = plot_shock_decomposition(M_,oo_,options_,varlist);
Does anyone have an idea how to fix this error? When I type “which dates” Matlab returns
C:\dynare\4.8-unstable-2021-12-01-1855-8b3fc976\matlab\modules\dseries\src@dates\dates.m % dates constructor
Any help is appreciated!
