Book Description Aventiune Press, Imperial Beach, California, 2003. Hard Cover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. Not Given. "This biok will explore pairs trading from a variety of angles, each the joint goal of illustrating both the general tenants of the strategy and presenting one particular approach that the author believed to be superior to others. Toward that end, each chapter and section that follows will be divided into two distinct parts. The first part will consist of the general principles that govern the strategy; this will allow those readers who wish to develop their own systems to apply the concepts as appropriate to their ultimate end. The second part will provide specific instructions about how to trade pairs of equities following the guidelines that the author believes are critical to portfolio optimization. It is important to acknowledge that no two traders ever will agree fully on the best way to manage a portfolio, and no one is suggesting that the methods favored in this book are final or foolproof words on the subject. What can be said with confidence is that when a reader comes to the end of these pages, he or she will be familiar not only with the concepts behind pairs trading but also will have a concrete approach from which to build his or her individual methodology. Another issue that should be addressed early on is that of security type. The majority of this book focuses on trading equity pairs. The strategy can be employed with derivative instruments as well, and made more complex with various detailed options strategies. These will not be the focus because some of the central ideas that drive pairs trading are easily lost under the vagaries of various complex derivative theories. remaining focused on equities will provide a foundation necessary to understanding the strategy. Option theory can always be added later." This book has 235 pages. The text contains NO internal marks whatsoever. Overall, a FINE copy with FINE dustjacket of the EXTREMELY SCARCE title.
