Graphical Summary of Output Created with bgvar

Description

Plotting function for fitted values, residuals, predictions, impulse responses and forecast error variance decompositions created with the BGVAR package.

Usage

## S3 method for class 'bgvar'
plot(x, ..., resp = NULL, global = TRUE)

## S3 method for class 'bgvar.resid'
plot(x, ..., resp = NULL, global = TRUE)

## S3 method for class 'bgvar.pred'
plot(x, ..., resp = NULL, cut = 40, quantiles = c(0.1, 0.16, 0.5, 0.84, 0.9))

## S3 method for class 'bgvar.irf'
plot(
  x,
  ...,
  resp = NULL,
  shock = 1,
  quantiles = c(0.1, 0.16, 0.5, 0.84, 0.9),
  cumulative = FALSE
)

## S3 method for class 'bgvar.fevd'
plot(x, ..., resp, k.max = 10)

Arguments

x

Either an object of class bgvar, bgvar.res, bgvar.irf, bgvar.predict or bgvar.fevd.

...

Additional arguments.

resp

Specify either a specific variable, a specific country or a specific variable in a specific country which should be plotted. If set to NULL all countries is plotted.

global

If global=TRUE global residuals are plotted, otherwise country residuals.

cut

Length of series to be plotted before prediction begins.

quantiles

Numeric vector with posterior quantiles. Default is set to plot median along with 68%/80% confidence intervals.

shock

Specify the shock which should be plotted.

cumulative

Default is set to FALSE. If cumulative=TRUE cumulative impulse response functions are plotted.

k.max

plots the k series with the highest for the decomposition of resp.

Value

No return value.

Examples



# example for class 'bgvar'
plot(model.ssvs, resp=c("EA.y","US.Dp"))


# example for class 'bgvar.resid'
res <- residuals(model.ssvs)
plot(res, resp="EA.y")


# example for class 'bgvar.pred'
fcast <- predict(model.ssvs,n.ahead=8)
plot(fcast, resp="y", cut=20)


# example for class 'bgvar.irf'
shockinfo <- get_shockinfo("chol")
shockinfo$shock <- "US.stir"; shockinfo$scale <- +1
irf.chol<-irf(model.ssvs, n.ahead=24, shockinfo=shockinfo)
plot(irf.chol, resp="US")


# example for class 'bgvar.fevd'
fevd.us=fevd(irf.chol,var.slct=c("US.stir"))
plot(fevd.us, resp="US.stir", k.max=10)
