Dear,
I want help with the output coefficient signals of my VEC model.
In the first part of the cointegration equation, we have some coefficientes with signals, but when I put them on a paper for analysis and discussion, the signals will be exchanged, correct?

Let me explain: the negative signal of the LPG coefficient is actually positive, correct? The negative signal of the LPS coefficient is actually positive and the positive signal of the constant will actually be negative, correct?
The true signals are the opposite, correct?
Example: VEC Output
LPG(1) 1.217436 , the true value is 1.217436?
LPS(1) 0.206260, the true value is 0.206260?
c 1.193296, the true value is 1.193296?
Best Regards, José.

Re: Informations about Signal Coefficients on a VEC Output
If your underlying question is what is the actual cointegrating relationship, then yes, the signs are in fact reversed. Thus, in your case, the cointegrating relationship is
Code: Select all
LPE(1) = 1.217436*LPG(1) + 0.206260*LPS(1)  1.193296
Re: Informations about Signal Coefficients on a VEC Output
Thanks a lot, Mirza.
And the signals from the Error Correction equation stay the same as we see at the Eviews, correct?

Re: Informations about Signal Coefficients on a VEC Output
Indeed. In fact, if you go to View and then Representations, and search among that output, you'll see that the VEC equation for your cointegrating relationship is in fact:
Code: Select all
D(LPE)=0.402196*(LPE(1)1.217436*LPG(1)0.206260*LPS(1)+1.193296)+0.442810*D(LPE(1))0.267557*D(LPG(1)) ... etc
Re: Informations about Signal Coefficients on a VEC Output
Thanks a lot, Mizra.
Now a new doubt has arisen, Would the value of the longterm coefficient of lpg (1) be the multiplication of the coefficient of cointegration 0.402196 by the coefficient of lpg (1) within the parentheses (1.217436)?

Re: Informations about Signal Coefficients on a VEC Output
If I understand your question correctly, you are wondering about the alpha*beta' partialization of the cointegrating matrix? If this indeed the case, then the answer is no since alpha*beta' = 0.402196 for this cointegrating relationship. In other words,1.217436 is an element of beta, which is the cointegrating vector (matrix).
