MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: Introduction of new econometric methods raises interest in assessing the old theories and the J-curve phenomenon is no exception. Like previous research we first use the linear ARDL approach of Pesaran et al. (2001) to investigate the phenomenon between Korea and each of her 14 trading partners. We then employ recent nonlinear ARDL approach of Shin et al. (2014) to show that in most cases, exchange rate changes have short-run and long-run asymmetric effects on the bilateral trade balances. Separating depreciations from appreciations which is the main feature of the nonlinear model relies upon nonlinear adjustment of the exchange rate and provides relatively more support for the J-curve effect.
