Starting values in estimation of cointegrating vectors with restrictions
In cointegration analysis, when considering a hypothesis of the kind beta =(H_1*phi_1,...,H_n*phi_n) the estimator is a simple switching method that requires starting values. We propose using additional restrictions, then solutions of an eigenvector problem may be used as starting values. Using a real world data set the proposed starting values seem to be better than the old, and sometimes they are much better.
