Estimates the parameters of the Feller process.

Description

Loglikelihood for the CIR model

dr = alpha(beta-r)dt + sigma sqrt(r) dW.

The time scale is in years and the units are percentages.

Usage

1
LogLikFeller( theta, R, days, n)

Arguments

theta

Vector of parameters: (alpha,beta,sigma,q1,q2).

R

Observed returns.

days

Number of days in a year.

n

Length of the time series.

Value

LL

-1 x Log-likelihood (to be minimized).
