One of the most successful stock timing programs is pairs trading, but the competition is fierce, the profits are small, and it takes a full-time commitment. Up to now, it’s been limited to professional traders. By applying the Stress Indicator and taking only the long side, we can increase the size of returns and we can still be protected when the market turns down. We can hold the trade for days instead of minutes. Learn about pairs trading and how it can be changed to be more profitable and work for you.
