Abstract

In this paper, we propose new tests for threshold cointegration in the autoregressive distributed lag (ADL) model. The indicators in the threshold model are based on either a nonstationary or stationary threshold variable. The cointegrating vector in this paper is not pre-specied. We adopt a supremum Wald type test to account for the so-called Davies problem. Theasymptotic null distributions of the proposed tests are free of nuisance parameters. As such, a bootstrap procedure is not required and critical values of the proposed tests are tabulated. A Monte Carlo experiment shows a good finite-sample performance of the proposed tests.
