Abstract
This article seeks an empirical evidence for the existence of the Jcurve phenomenon both in the shortrun and longrun for Turkey over the period 19802005. The bounds testing cointegration approach is employed to estimate the trade balance model. An augmented form of Granger causality analysis is implemented between trade balance, real effective exchange rates, foreign income and domestic income. The stability of the shortrun as well as longrun coefficients in the trade balance model is tested too. The empirical results suggest that the Jcurve phenomenon is supported only in the shortrun. Whilst causality tests reveal mix results, the parameter stability tests seem to be inconclusive.
