### Re: TARCOINT

Ok thanks, the exogenous variable influences only the residuals but when i estimate the model with or without the exogenous variable all coefficients and statistics are the same. Nothing change.

### Re: TARCOINT

Try defining your exogenous variable as a group with single series and then enter the name of this group when running the add-in. It seems the code does not read if the type of input variable is series. I'll fix it...

### Re: TARCOINT

It works with the exogenous variable as a group.

Thank you very much.

### Re: TARCOINT

if i want to test following asymmetric ECM equation ∆H_t=Aw_(t-1)^+ +βw_(t-1)[b]^- +C∆H_(t-1)+D∆m+u_t ,where w_(t-1) should be divided into postive and negative. However, I dont know which factors should enter into the endogenous varibales and which should enter into the exogenous variables in the threshold adjustment of EVIEWS.
i guess the ∆H and ∆m should be the endogenous variables and w_(t-1)should be exgoneous variable. is that right?
THANKS

Should i treat w(the cointegration term) as exgoneous variable and ∆H and ∆m as endogenous variables?
thanks

### Re: TARCOINT

Thanks alot for this useful add-in
How can i use it in Eviews? I just completed TAR and MTAR for my data? But I dont know What I do next for TECM? Please help me

### Re: TARCOINT

I'm trying to replicate the results found by enders and siklos (2001) using your eviews add-in and a database available at Estima. However, all the results that I estimate are different from the paper (Johassen cointegration, Engle-granger, TAR and M-TAR).
Did anyone get the same results? It is a problem on the data?
Another question, why the delta default value is 0,6? Do I need to test differents values?
Thanks

### Re: TARCOINT

Hello,

I wanted to find a consistent estimate of the Threshold as per Chan 1993. I can't seem to figure out how I can do that using the add-in. Any help? Im consistently getting threshold as 0.

### Re: TARCOINT

i use the add-in tarcoint and i would like to know whether i do the procedure right. i do the dols and then decompose the residuals i have obtained from dols into - and + and then put them as endogenous variables in the tarcoint. is that right?

### Re: TARCOINT

There is nothing technically wrong with running the procedure on the residuals. However, I cannot verify or validate your approach from an econometric standpoint.

### Re: TARCOINT

does tarcoint automatically uses the engle - granger cointegration ? so maybe there is a problem with the dols!? or am i ok?
i prefer the residuals because i thought to perform first a dols cointergration with breaks as exogenous and then decompose the res into + and minus and add them to the tarcoint.
Thank you once again for your time!

### Re: TARCOINT

Yes, tarcoint uses Engle-Granger specification. I am really not sure if you can (or should) follow that approach. You can, however, apply the same procedure and determine the threshold in your case, if you are willing to write your own code.
