Economic variables such as stock market indices, interest rates, and national output measures contain cyclical components. Forecasting methods excluding these cyclical components yield inaccurate out-of-sample forecasts.

Subsequently, a VAR with cyclical components improves the root-mean-squaredoi:10.22237/jmasm/1539003896 fatcat:2t5ozekutjafra3f6255j6sy74
