Testing for near I(2) trends when the signal to noise ratio is small
No 2014-8, Economics Discussion Papers from Kiel Institute for the World Economy (IfW)
Researchers seldom find evidence of I(2) in exchange rates, prices, and other macroeconomics time series when they test the order of integration using univariate Dickey-Fuller tests. In contrast, when using the multivariate ML trace test we frequently find double unit roots in the data. Our paper demonstrates by simulations that this often happens when the signal-to-noise-ratio is small.
