Abstract

Nonlinear dynamics in the term structure of German interest rates resulting from heterogenous transaction costs in the money market are analysed by means of the smooth transition technique introduced by Granger and Teräsvirta (1993). Tests for linearity, specific functional forms and outliers are performed. Evidence is found indicating that the term structure is somewhat better described as a nonlinear cointegrated model instead of a linear one.
