Time scale evaluation of economic forecasts

Antonis Michis ()

Economics Letters, 2014, vol. 123, issue 3, 279-281

Abstract: A maximal overlap discrete wavelet transform is used to obtain time scale decompositions of economic forecasts and their errors. The generated time scale components can be used in loss measures and tests for comparing forecast accuracy to evaluate whether the forecasts accurately capture the cyclical features of the data.
