Combining Cointegration and Stock Pair Trading for a Winning Combination

Professional traders and hedge fund managers love to use the stock pair trading strategy.  Pair Trading involves simultaneously entering LONG (i.e. BUYING) and entering SHORT (i.e. SELLING) two “paired” securities.  The technique provides protection from market crashes, controlled risk, low correlation to the market averages and ability to generate significant and consistent returns.  Multiple recent research studies have demonstrated returns to be in the range of 2%-4% per month*, on a 4:1 leverage basis, over more than a decade.

Add in the use of Cointegrated Stock Pairs and the historical returns look even stronger**.
