This paper provides an empirical analysis of the decomposition of Denmark Krone real exchange rates into the relative price of traded goods and the relative price ratio of non-traded and traded goods in a selective European time-series context to test the prediction that deviations from the law of one price in tradable goods dominates real exchange rate variability in the short run only. The Engle-Granger and Johansen’s method of co-integration is used to test this theory along with a half-life analysis to see the degree of persistence of traded goods. These tests suggest that law of one price does not hold.

Keywords: real exchange rates, Balassa-Samuelson, Engle-Granger, Johansens, (time series) co-integration
