Abstract

This paper introduces a new type of nonlinear model, the min-max model, and analyzes the properties for a pair of series. Stability conditions of this system are given for the nonlinearly integrated bivariate series. Under these stability conditions, the difference of the two series has a threshold-type nonlinearity. One can construct a threshold error correction model from min-max processes. Neglected nonlinearity tests are applied, to the univariate series and to the system, to detect nonlinearity, and it turns out that the tests using the system have better power. We apply the min-max model to U.S. Treasury bill and commercial paper interest rates. The spread of these interest rates shows a threshold-type nonlinearity, and this model outperforms a linear model in terms of its predictability out-of-sample
