To help participants develop the following skills with respect to forecasting economic indicators:

  • Use of econometric instruments for practical forecasting.
  • Constructing a model applicable for forecasting. Assessing model parameters and choosing the functional form (levels vs gains; linear vs non-linear).
  • Model diagnostics and determining its use limitations (maximum forecasting horizon, applicability for developing stress scenarios, etc.)
  • Avoiding common mistakes (spurious regression, overparametrization, underestimation of structural shifts and exceptional points, etc.).

Forecasting in credit analysis. Training program:
Course 2: practical aspects of economic modeling
