Trading Correlation

October 8, 2010

CSS was recently featured in Active Trader Magazine — a publication that is well worth reading for trading strategy. We wrote an article about using correlation regimes to guide mean-reversion strategies. A link to the intro can be found here: http://www.activetradermag.com/index.php/c/Trading_Strategies/d/Trading_correlation We will take a closer look at this topic in future posts.

    Terrific work gang. Interestingly, when I get an SPY based signal, I have long observed that my best vehicle to trade fades with is the most stretched among the majors in contrast to the SPY as a baseline measure.

    Oh, and here is another piece on correlation I have been thinking about for several years, recently published. Cheers, Jeff

    You were onto YHOO a month ago, and picks have been exceedingly good.
    Brilliant!

    Just finished reading your article in Active Trader. I wanted to give it a test run but I’m a little confused as to what 60-day z-score of 60-day average correlation means exactly? Any chance you have it in Excel?
