I would like to use the overlapping sample ideally using fe estimation,
though for that I would need to correct for the outocorrelation generated by
the moving average!

That said, do you know if STATA has an option to correct this problem for
panel data! Ideally for fixed effect estimations?
If there were not, it is possible to program a new tipe of VCE matrix
(adjusting by the number of data overlaps)?

ssc desc xtivreg2
ssc inst ivreg2
ssc inst xtivreg2
ssc inst ranktest

Use xtivreg2, fe with options  robust bw(5)  to take care of the MA(4) in your overlapping data.
