I estimated a log-linearization form model with non-zero inflation and get this weird mode check plots. Does it mean something wrong in my model or estimation? I use the one-side HP filter for GDP , CPI and interest rate quarterly data.

Here is my mode check plots

The red dots indicate a problem with the steady state finding. Is there a reason you only provide initial values, not a `steady_state_model`

?

Thanks professor for you reply, but I use steady_state_model, the mode sheck plots same as before.

Please provide the updated file.

This is not a proper `steady_state_model`

-block. It will not take parameter dependence into account and will therefore not work for any other parameter vector. I get the error message:

```
Cannot solve the model for b (info = 19, The steadystate file did not compute the steady state)
```

Yes, they look ok. The thing to note is the scaling of the y-axes.
