We construct priors for the tempered hierarchical Dirichlet process vector autoregression model (tHDP-VAR) that in practice do not lead to explosive forecasting dynamics. Additionally, we show that tHDP-VAR and its variational Bayesian approximation with heuristics demonstrate competitive or even better forecasting performance on US and Russian datasets.
