Re: st: VECM: Deterministic Factors & Significance for ce1 in short-run parameters

```Dear Daniel

As far as my knowledge goes significant ce term is essential for
cointegration; in other words significant ce terms indicate presence
of cointegration and the size of cointegrating coefficient is supposed
to be negative and should be in between 0 to 1.

Hope it helps
