Ox Console

The latest console version of Ox is available for downloading: Older versions of Ox Console are still available (but not recommended).

Modelbase derived packages that have been compiled (.oxo files and dynamic link libraries) for Ox 7 need recompilation for Ox 8. The first reason is that functionality has been added. The second is that Y_VAR style constants have been moved into the class, so now use obj.Select("Y" or obj.Select(classname::Y_VAR. The advantage is that these constants now cannot clash anymore.

Ox Professional

Ox Professional 8 is available from from Timberlake Consultants. Available upgrades for OxMetrics 8 are listed here.

Upgrades for OxMetrics 7 are still available.

Ox packages and code

The following are part of the standard release:
  • Arma package: functions which are useful in ARMA models
  • Maximization package: numerical optimization and differentiation.
  • Probability package: density, quantile, cumulative density and random number generation of various probability functions.
  • PcFiml class: Econometric modelling (VARs, cointegration, simultaneous equations estimation, diagnostic tests).
  • Simulation class: Monte Carlo experiments.
  • QuadPack: numerical integration.
  • Arfima: ARFIMA(p,d,q) models.
  • DPD: dynamic panel data models.
  • Development kit: libraries to create dynamic link libraries for Ox.

See under old downloads for packages that are specific to Ox 7 and before.

Here are some additional Ox packages that I maintain or host:
Excel2Ox package providing xll's to call Ox from Excel (Windows only)
Financial Numerical Recipes for Ox
Model Discovery Code for the Empirical Model Discovery and Theory Evaluation book by David F. Hendry and Jurgen A. Doornik.
OxMPI 3.00
Ox wrapper using MPI for distributed processing, see the included documentation. The included Ox code facilitates running Ox programs on multiple processors (or cores) using OxMPI.
SSFPack 3.0. SSFPack routines for the statistical analysis of univariate and multivariate models in state space form
STR2 for estimation and testing of smooth-transition autoregressive models

Here are some additional Ox packages (these are not maintained by me):
Bootstrap and Simulation Classes for computing and simulating parametric bootstrap tests. The double and fast double bootstraps are implemented.
Cofrac: estimating co-fractional systems.
Extreme value analysis.
GnuDraw implements the Ox drawing routines following the original syntax, but with output in GnuPlot. Included are possibilities to create bivariate graphs, and also to plot irregularly spaced time series data.
MaxSA for maximization using simulated annealing.
MC2Pack for using MCMC sampling methods to construct a sample from a posterior density.
OxDBI: a database independent abstraction layer for Ox.
OxJapi 2 simple Java-based cross-platform GUI extensions for Ox 7.
OxJapi simple Java-based cross-platform GUI extensions for Ox.
Quantile regression
SFAMB is a tool for stochastic frontier (SF) estimation techniques including the basic estimator (with extensions) as well as panel fixed effects SF estimators. The zip-file includes an user manual.
Stochastic volatility by Jouchi Nakajima.
Time Series Modelling for time series models incorporating long memory, GARCH, regime-switching, and other forms of nonlinearity.
TVP-VAR: Time-varying parameter vector autoregressive models.

    This uses the Message Passing Interface (MPI) to run simulations on multiple processors.
  • ParaDiOx (Parallel Distributed Ox). By using the Message Passing Interface (MPI) to communicate, ParaDiOx becomes a very stable and dynamic tool for parallel computing.

OxMetrics upgrades

Download OxEdit

OxEdit (Windows/Linux/OS X) is not available as a seperate download, but included in the Ox Console and Ox Professional installations.

OxEdit facilitates the use of modules from the editor, by providing a menu option to add predefined modules. None of these modules are provided with OxEdit.
