# Week 1 to week 6 in learning VAR

### Week 1: Introduction to Time Series Analysis

#### Overview of Time Series Data:

python
# Load necessary libraries import pandas as pd import matplotlib.pyplot as plt # Load and visualize time series data data = pd.read_csv('your_time_series_data.csv') plt.figure(figsize=(10, 6)) plt.plot(data['Date'], data['Value']) plt.title('Time Series Data') plt.xlabel('Date') plt.ylabel('Value') plt.show()

#### Time Series Components:

python
# Decomposition of time series data from statsmodels.tsa.seasonal import seasonal_decompose result = seasonal_decompose(data['Value'], model='additive', period=12) result.plot() plt.show()

#### Statistical Properties of Time Series:

python
# Stationarity check using Augmented Dickey-Fuller test from statsmodels.tsa.stattools import adfuller result = adfuller(data['Value']) print('ADF Statistic:', result[0]) print('p-value:', result[1]) print('Critical Values:', result[4])

### Week 2: Fundamentals of Vector Autoregression (VAR)

#### Introduction to VAR Model:

python
# Import VAR model from statsmodels from statsmodels.tsa.vector_ar.var_model import VAR # Create VAR model model = VAR(data)

#### Estimation and Interpretation:

python
# Fit the VAR model results = model.fit() # Summary of the VAR model print(results.summary())

#### Granger Causality and Lag Selection:

python
# Granger causality test from statsmodels.tsa.stattools import grangercausalitytests max_lag = 4 # maximum lag to test causality granger_test_result = grangercausalitytests(data, max_lag)

### Week 3: Implementing VAR in Python

#### Building a VAR Model in Python:

python
# Implementing VAR model using statsmodels library model = VAR(data) results = model.fit(maxlags=4) # fitting the model with selected maximum lag

#### Visualization and Forecasting with VAR:

python
# Plotting results and visualizing time series forecasts results.plot_forecast(10)

#### Implementing Impulse Response Analysis:

python
# Impulse Response Analysis irf = results.irf(10) irf.plot(orth=False)

This breakdown provides code snippets for key concepts covered in the weekly plan. For the complete course, you would expand upon these snippets, incorporate explanations, provide datasets, and encourage students to apply these techniques to various time series datasets and financial data, ensuring they understand the theory and practical implementation of VAR models in Python.

#### Why the government of Japan increase their interest rate?

Recent news

The Japanese government, through the Bank of Japan (BOJ), raised interest rates in August 2024 in response to growing inflationary pressures. Japan had experienced years of low inflation, even deflation, but by mid-2024, inflation had accelerated beyond expectations, driven by higher energy costs, a weakening yen, and global supply chain disruptions. These inflationary trends threatened the BOJ's long-term price stability target.

#### How the Yen currency appreciation affect carry trade

Recent news

The "yen carry trade" refers to an investment strategy where investors borrow yen at low interest rates and invest in higher-yielding foreign assets. Japan’s historically low interest rates made the yen attractive for this strategy, as borrowing in yen was cheap. Investors would use the borrowed funds to buy assets in countries with higher interest rates, pocketing the difference in yield.

#### The formula of buble

Recent news

An **asset bubble** doesn't have a single, universally accepted formula, but it can be understood through a combination of economic models and indicators that show when asset prices deviate significantly from their intrinsic or fundamental values. Typically, asset bubbles occur when the prices of financial assets, such as stocks, real estate, or commodities, rise rapidly and unsustainably due to speculative demand, often detached from the underlying economic fundamentals.
