Johenson Co-integration test is applied to analyze the data. Co-integration is present in the continent of Africa in recent years as the Trace statistic value is greater than the critical value (T>C.V) so there is co-integration between the countries regarding the Gold reserves in the continent of Africa. Countries in Asia show that co-integration is present. It is observed that co-integration is present in Europe from recent years.
