Stata does not deal with business-daily data. The gaps introduced by tsfill will make many commands fail. You should just gen t = _n and tsset t. You can maintain a separate date variable in order to examine the number of calendar days between successive obs. if that is important. You just do not use it with tsset.

Dear Prof. Baum,

I am working on my reserch in the area of capital market. You helped me a lot during my previous research of modeling TARCH.

In this time, my problem is about setting the time series for my data that consists of 5-day week stock price. I have been trying to tsset my data and always come up with may gaps, since my data is not full 7-day week. I can not find a way to let STATA read 5-day week.

Please help me to solve this problem.

Kind regards,
