Spread Trading Fundamentals

On Wednesday we hosted a webinar about Spread Trading Fundamentals.  Below is the replay of the webinar.  We had great turnout, including lots of first-time attendees.  We talked about how to set up and trade spreads, and we discussed how to use Spread Analyzer.  As I said in the webinar, if you are new to spreads then you have definitely come to the right place.  

Spreads (or pairs) can really help you visualize arbitrage opportunities where one stock is trading cheap and another is trading expensive on a relative basis, as I discussed in my CMS-DTE example in the webinar.  Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for you to trade spreads by providing all the tools you need for finding, tracking, and recording your spreads.  Whether you are new to spread trading or experienced, we have tools that can help you.  

If you want more information about Spread Trading, please explore our site.  Our How to Trade Spreads handbook is extremely useful to find out more about everything from spread trading fundamentals to more advanced topics like statistical arbitrage, cockroach theory, and more.  Please click on SpreadTraderPro to find out more about SpreadTraderPro and the handbook. 

Please stay tuned for more Spread Trading webinars, including an exclusive bonus webinar later this month for SpreadTraderPro members only!  Our next general webinar will be in early November.
