Later Problem with Recursive Estimation

Hi you all, greetings!

I’ve been having a problem when recursively estimating a model. After the first round of the MH algorithm, I’m always getting the following message:

[code]MH: Forecasted variables (mean)
MH: Forecasted variables (mean), done!
MH: Forecasted variables (point)
MH: Forecasted variables (point), done!
Error using set
Bad property value found.
Object Name: axes
Property Name: 'XLim’
Values must be increasing and non-NaN.

Error in xlim (line 44)

Error in dynare_estimation_1 (line 1044)
xlim([1 gend])

Error in dynare_estimation (line 66)

Error in sim2est (line 142)

Error in dynare (line 120)
evalin(‘base’,fname) ;

The model is running easily when estimating it with fixed samples. My last line of command is:

I have a data file with 172 points. Thanks for helping me,


Which Dynare version are you using. Have you tried the most recent snapshot? If the problem persists, send me the mod-file and the data-file as a private message.

Hi jp, thanks for your reply, using the 4.3.3 version!

message sent!

Either start at observation 2, i.e. nobs=2:40 or replace


in dynare_estimation_1.m

Thanks a lot JP!

The problem should also be fixed in the most recent unstable version.
