How to perform johansen cointegration test in var with. This test permits more than one cointegrating relationship so is more generally applicable than the englegranger test which is based on the dickeyfuller or the augmented test for unit roots in the residuals from a single estimated cointegrating. This is determined by eviews as optimal according to 3 criteria first estimate var with any of the lag specifications, check the optimality of the lag order in viewlag structurelag specificationlag length criteria and then reestimate the vecm with the optimal lag order. I will focus on the simple case of one unit root in each of the variables with no constant terms or other deterministic terms.

So the first step for you is to run an augmented dicker fuller adf unit root test on all the variables in your model. Note that the englegranger and phillipsperron tests may also be performed as a view of a group object. To test for that i read that you can make a johansen system cointegration but i really do not understand all the options intercept, trend.

Do all of the models need to have cointegrating vecors for there to be cointegration. An alternative approach to test for cointegration was introduced by johansen 1988. If you are really sure that there is a long term relationship in your data, then check that you are using the correct number of lags and appropriate dummy variables constant, trend, seasonal dummies, etc and then rerun the johansen procedure again. While one could estimate an equation with spurious trends and then to test for their significance using a wald test, eviews. Note that since this is a test for cointegration, this test is only valid when you are working with series that are known to be nonstationary. This lecture revisits these topics in the context of the var model and looks in detail at the johansen 1988, 1991 procedure for testing for cointegration. His approach allows to avoid some drawbacks existing in the englegrangers approach and test the number of cointegrating relations directly.
A wald test for the cointegration rank in nonstationary. The default trace test assesses null hypotheses h r of cointegration rank less than or equal to r against the alternative h n, where n is the dimension of the data. Johansen test the johansen test approaches the testing for cointegration by examining the number of independent linear combinations k for an m time series variables set that. One important test for cointegration that is invariant to the ordering of variables is the fullinformation maximum likelihood test of johansen aka johansen test. As an example, the header portion of the cointegration test output for the fourvariable system used by johansen and juselius 1990 for the. Ideally, a nontechnical explanation would be appreciated. I found contradict results from the two above test, when eg test showed there is cointegration between. System cointegration testing using johansens methodology is described in johansen cointegration test.
This article shows the cointegration test for var with three variables. In giles and godwin 2012 we provide eviews and r code that generates asymptotic pvalues and the 1%, 5% and 10% asymptotic critical values for the h l and h c cointegration tests proposed by johansen et al. The summaries show that the first test rejects a cointegration rank of 0 no cointegration and just barely rejects a cointegration rank of 1, but fails to reject a cointegration rank of 2. Pedroni 1999, 2004, kao 1999 and fishertype test using johansens test methodology maddala. See unit root testing for details on carrying out unit root tests in eviews.
Watch video on how to conduct johansen cointegration test in eviews however, if the null hypothesis cannot be rejected, it evidences no cointegration and hence there is no longrun relationship among the series. Johansen cointegration test with eviews in the previous discussion we had shown that how we do the cointegration test what we called it as engle and granger tes t. If i am correct there are 5 posible models with different degrees of freedom. Say you need to explain it to an investor and justify why your pairs trading strategy should make him rich. As i understand it, johansen cointegration test is used for series that are integrated of the same order. The cointegration test specification page opens to prompt you for information about the test. Dwyer april 2015 time series can be cointegrated in various ways, with details such as trends assuming some importance because asymptotic distributions depend on the presence or lack of such terms. Although johansen s methodology is typically used in a setting where all variables in the system are i1, having stationary variables in the system is theoretically not an issue and johansen 1995 states that there is little need to pre test the variables in the system to establish their order of integration. This video shows you how to perform the johansen cointegration test using stata. As an example, the header portion of the cointegration test output for the four variable system used by johansen and juselius 1990 for the. I have seen questions like how to interpret the test results, but when i am interpreting mine i have some doubts.
One way to test the existence of cointegration is the regression method see, engle and granger 1986 eg. Multivariate cointegration johansen and jesilius 1988 and stock and watson 1988 develop max likelihood procedure to test for cointegration their test could estimate and test the number of cointegration equations and to test restricted versions. Following johansen s technique, the normalized longterm cointegration relationships and the comparison coefficients are shown in tables c1. In summary, the johansen cointegration test results show that the four variable groups in table a1 are cointegrated during the periods and had a longterm equilibrium relationship during 1981 and 2012. You may likely get spurrious result if you run the test on series that are integrated of different orders. In statistics, the johansen test, named after soren johansen, is a procedure for testing cointegration of several, say k, i1 time series.

This test has the advantage that it is intuitive, easy to perform and once we master it we will also realize it. On a side note, i am quite concerned over the low number of.
This implies that, if there are shocks to the system, the model is not likely to converge in the longrun. You may wish first to apply unit root tests to each series in the var.
