cointmonitoR: Consistent Monitoring of Stationarity and Cointegrating Relationships

We propose a consistent monitoring procedure to detect a structural change from a cointegrating relationship to a spurious relationship. The procedure is based on residuals from modified least squares estimation, using either Fully Modified, Dynamic or Integrated Modified OLS. It is inspired by Chu et al. (1996) <doi:10.2307/2171955> in that it is based on parameter estimation on a pre-break "calibration" period only, rather than being based on sequential estimation over the full sample. See the discussion paper <doi:10.2139/ssrn.2624657> for further information. This package provides the monitoring procedures for both the cointegration and the stationarity case (while the latter is just a special case of the former one) as well as printing and plotting methods for a clear presentation of the results.
