Re: st: A univariate GARCH model

```To estimate GARCH models, use the -arch- command. For example, to
estimate a GARCH(1,1) model similar to what you specified (did not
test the code, not sure if it converges):

webuse wpi1
arch D.ln_wpi, arima(4,0,0) arch(1) garch(1)

and to get the standardized residuals e(star)

predict res, resid
predict h, var
gen stdres=res/h
