PairTrade Finder PRO: Cointegration-Based Top 30 US Equities Pairs November 2018 Update

Our latest update of our Top 30 US Equities Pairs. We use cointegration as the primary screening criterion to allow cointegration-based pair trading.

Pairs target a p-value on the Cointegration Augmented Dicky Fuller Test of 0.10 or less.

Recent research (2015) has shown that a cointegration-based selection process for trading equities pairs leads to robust and statistically significant positive excess returns over the S&P 500.

See our Resources section for the study by Huck & Afawubo titled “Pairs trading and selections methods: is cointegration superior?”

Summary:

Including transaction costs, robust strategies…are the following: Cointegration whatever the length of the formation period or the opening trigger. Returns are especially high with monthly excess returns, including transaction costs, greater than 1.38%…and going up to about 5% over a period of more than 10 years. These are clearly the main and most impressive empirical finding of this article.

Happy Trading!
