Excel Software for Pairs Trading and Stat Arb

Pairs trading is a market-neutral trading strategy that matches a long position with a short position in a pair of highly correlated instruments such as two stocks, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), currencies, commodities or options. It enables traders to profit from virtually any market conditions: uptrend, downtrend, or sideways movement.

This strategy is categorized as statistical arbitrage, or stat arb, and is a “mean-reverting” strategy i.e., betting that the prices will eventually revert to their historical trends. Pairing trading is also attractive because it is substantially self-funding, since the short sale proceeds may be used to create the long position.
