Dear Statalist Members, 

I tried to run the following simple nonlinear GMM specification with over 2 million observations. It took more than 10 hours to do iteration 0. I had to cancel the procedure and rerun the estimation using a 1% sample of the data to test the specification. I guess I could get a workstation with more than one processors and stata/MP... But that would be expensive...

I also tried to include the derivatives in the stata statement. Doing that increased speed quite a bit using the 1% sample. It is still taking a very long time (it is almost 16 hours and I am still waiting).  

Any suggestions?

Many thanks
