In this paper, the authors consider a model in which there is discontinuous adjustment to a long-run equilibrium. Here, the equilibrium error follows a threshold autoregression that is mean-reverting outside a given range and has a unit root inside the range. The authors suggest a two-step approach for examining threshold cointegration. They find that standard time series methods developed for testing for cointegration in the linear case work reasonably well when threshold cointegration is present. The authors then consider a 'sup-Wald' test of linearity that takes the double-threshold model as the alternative hypothesis.
