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.

Stock Trading Strategies: Long-Only Has Been Amazing…BUT

A Word on Stock Trading Strategies

Since Q2 2009, the most common of stock trading strategies – passive “long-only” i.e. just buy the S&P 500, would have delivered 348% or a 15.2% CAGR with dividends reinvested and without transactions costs or management fees (Source: https://dqydj.com/sp-500-return-calculator/)

But with the S&P 500 at or near a new all-time high, is the risk still weighted in your favour?  Perhaps, if you can hold 20-30 years.  But what about the next few years?

If you had held the S&P 500 from January 2008 until January 2009, the S&P 500 delivered a -35.6% return with dividends reinvested and without transactions costs or management fees (Source: https://dqydj.com/sp-500-return-calculator/)
