Pairs Trading

FCS has a proprietary Pairs Trading model, based on advanced statistics covering European and US markets, available to clients.

Pairs trading is a non-directional strategy that speculates on the price movements between two instruments. The key her is the relative movements between the two sets of prices.

Pairs trading is a sophisticated trading strategy because it requires skills that are different to long-only investing. Statistical knowledge quantitative back testing, technical analysis and/ or fundamental know-how are all needed to some extent to create and manage a successful pairs trading strategy.
When trading on the differential movement of two securities, you either speculate that they will narrow (convergence) or wide (divergence). The trick is to trade at the right time. The reason is that the disparity in value may sometimes widen further – outside historical boundaries – causing losses to the pair trade.
