After identifying shortcomings associated with most previous studies on the relation between the trade balance and the exchange rate, we reexamine the statistical relation between these two variables by employing the cointegration and error-correction modeling techniques. For most countries considered, we do not find evidence of a long-run relation between the trade balance and the exchange rate. Results from error-correction modeling provide some support for the short-run relation and the J-Curve phenomenon.
