Hi, I’m receiving this warning in Dynare 4.2.1:
MH: I’m computing the posterior mean and covariance… Warning: Matrix is close to singular or badly scaled.
Results may be inaccurate. RCOND = 9.491241e-17.

MH: The support of the weighting density function is not large enough…
MH: I increase the variance of this distribution.
MH: There’s probably a problem with the modified harmonic mean estimator.
Can somebody please explain what this means and what I can do about it?
