NEWSIMPACT: Stata module to compute news impact curve for ARCH models
newsimpact is for use after arch. It plots the news impact curve, the response in the conditional variance, sigma^2(t), to an innovation in the standardized error term, z(t-1). When calculating the response in sigma^2(t) historical conditional variances (sigma^2(t-i), i > 0) are set to sigma^2 and historical error terms (z(t-i), i > 1) are set to 1. The default value for sigma^2 is an estimate of the unconditional variance, the mean of the estimated conditional variances. Finally error terms that enter in the conditional variance formula are obtained as e(t) = sigma*z(t).
