I am wondering if it is possible to compute shock decomposition (i have dynare version 4.3) after the estimation is done. I tried to put the “shock_decomposition;” command in the Matlab command window but it doesn’t work. Even if after loading “myfile_results.mat” from the estimation.
Moreover, I have the following command:
[code]estimation(datafile=data_cpi_ols,first_obs=1,mh_replic=20000,mh_nblocks=5,mh_drop=0.40,mh_jscale=0.85,mode_compute=6,smoother) LOPG_ZE LOPG_UK LOPG_CH LOPG_US LOPG_JP LOPG_SW;
shock_decomposition(parameter_set=posterior_mode) LOPG_ZE LOPG_UK LOPG_CH LOPG_US LOPG_JP LOPG_SW;[/code]
but this generates the following error message:
MH: Smoothed variables
MH: Smoothed variables, done!
MH: Smoothed shocks
MH: Smoothed shocks, done!
Loading 53 observations from data_cpi_ols.mat
??? Error using ==> describe_missing_data
Too many input arguments.

Thanks in advance for any help!! I really need it for my phd thesis for which the deadline is on 29 october. Please, help!!!
