Cointegration and distance between differenced processes


  • Umberto Triacca



In this note, it is argued that cointegration augments the distance between the differenced series. If two series, x t and y t , are integrated of order one and cointegrated and v t and w t are integrated of order one but not cointegrated then, under certain conditions, the distance between Δx t and Δy t is more than the distance between Δv t and Δw t .
