Hello,
Is there a statistical test that will determine the threshold, if any, of a binary response variable to a continuous predictor variable?

For example,
My response variable is an increase or decrease in X, denoted as 0 (decrease) or 1 (increase). Cases of no change will be denoted as 0.  I have continuous response variable that goes from 0 - 100.  

Is there a procedure that could test if there is a value (threshold) in the predictor variable at which the the response variable above it is 1 and below it is zero?

Thanks,
JE
