I’m working on a non-linear model in Dynare. I simulate the model using
stoch_simul(order=2, irf=20, replic=500,…);
I find that stoch_simul option ‘replic >> 50’ is particularly helpful in terms of smoothing out the impulse response functions. There are numerous discussions about it’s otherwise oscillating nature on this forum. But I’m wondering if there is simple way to save all 500 draws to plot the range of IRF estimates akin to bootstrapped confidence intervals? After all, the fact that the IRF is smooth suggests that a lot of averaging takes place, which makes me suspicious as to how large is the uncertainty surrounding each point estimate? They must be stored somewhere, and if so – how do I find them?
