rugarch convergence fails

Geoffrey Smith-3
I would like to estimate the EGARCH model on two different time-series using the excellent rugarch package, but the solver fails to converge. I do not want to use the "hybrid" solver option because this introduces randomness when it cycles through the "gosolnp" solver. My two questions are: (1) is there something strange about my data (or data in general) that causes the failure to converge and (2) if not, is there a way to modify the ugarchfit function so that it "tries harder" to find a solution? Below are the data and code I am using.


library("rugarch")
