This idea is captured by the Vector Error Correction Model (VECM), which consists of a VAR model of the order p - 1 on the differences of the variables, and an error-correction term derived from the known (estimated) cointegrating relationship. Intuitively, and using the stock market example, a VECM model establishes a short-term relationship between the stock returns, while correcting with the deviation from the long-term comovement of prices. [ 19 ] Time Series Analysis Formally, a two-variable VECM, which we will discuss as a numerical example, can be written as follows.
Pars argument. aapl, out. roll=10) The plotting method of the forecasted series provides the user with a selection menu; we can plot either the predicted time series or the predicted conditional volatility. fcst, which='all') [ 35 ] Time Series Analysis Summary In this chapter, we reviewed some important concepts of time series analysis, such as cointegration, vector-autoregression, and GARCH-type conditional volatility models.

In a VAR model, our point of departure is a vector of time series yt of length n . The VAR model specifies the evolution of each variable as a linear function of the lagged values of all other variables; that is, a VAR model of the order p is the following: yt = A1 yt −1 + + A p yt − p + ut Here, A i are n × n the coefficient matrices for all i = 1 p , and ut is a vector white noise process with a positive definite covariance matrix.
