I am using the function filter to estimate portfolio returns. I get the following message when the code has to execute the function filter:
" 'Y0' is not a recognized parameter. For a list of valid name-value pair arguments, see the documentation for this function."
the code is the following:
portfolioReturns = filter(fit, bootstrappedResiduals,'V0', preSigma, 'Y0', preReturn, 'Z0', preResidual);
I have estimated a garch model with "estimate" at the beginning of the code.
Why do I get this type of error if in the documentation the input 'Y0' is reported. If I remove that input, all else equal, I get no error.
Any help?

Looking at the help page of the actual function:
'Y0' is not listed as a valid argument so I assume the example you are looking at is outdated.
I don't have the Econometrics Toolbox myself so I can't really judge any further what is going on beyond that.

The filter method of GARCH does have a name-value pair Y0. The demo runs smoothly on my computer. If it generates that error, I guess that the FILTER function might be altered, say someone wants to customize the codes and overloads the internal function.

The filter method of GARCH does not have a name-value pair for Y0. The filter method of arima does have a name-value pair for Y0

Oh yes, you are right. The model constructed in the demo is an ARIMA model with an EGARCH variance. So it has the name-value pair Y0. It should work in all versions of MATLAB as long as ARIMA functionalities were born.
