Re: [R] RE: GARCH (1 , 1), Hill estimator of alpha, Pareto estimator

          First, I doubt if you need "library(stats)", because it is normally automatically attached when R starts. To confirm, request "search()". When I just did this with R 2.1.0 patched, "package:stats" was the third item.

          Second, if you've already produced qq-plots and histograms, then I doubt if you need the "data(DAX_CAC)". If you have not exited R since you successfully imported the data, and you stored it as "DAX_CAC", it should still be available.

          Third, the message 'Error: couldn't find function "garch"' indicates that no function by that name is in the current "search()" path. The command 'RSiteSearch("garch")' revealed that it was part of package "tseries". To be able to access that, you need to 'install.packages("tseries")', 'update.packages()', and then 'library(tseries)'.

          This should get you past the error messages I see.
