Stock Pair Trading Through a Market Crash: Generate Consistent Profits

Stock Market Volatility Returns with a Vengeance

Last week in the U.S. Equities indices was certainly the definition of “interesting times”.  The DJIA crashed by over 1,800 points or 6.9% on Thursday, only to recover about 1.9% on Friday.  The S&P 500 behaved similarly.  The NASDAQ was a bit less volatile, but we think it’s saving up for a chance to really out-do the others.  Quite some volatility.  However, for many of our clients, it was an excellent opportunity to generate increased profits by stock pair trading through a market crash.
