Attention stock traders:
|Are you frustrated with directional trading strategies and their performance in volatile times?|
|Do you want to make money trading stocks' liquidity gaps, spikes, and market mispricing?|
|Are you ready to start trading the profitable strategy we have been using successfully for over 10 years?|
|Are you interested in incorporating spreads to create your own directional buy, hold, and sell signals?|
We believe we can help you elevate your trading to a whole new level.
When you trade one security at a time you are naked, exposed to undue risk. Your trade can be impacted by any number of things happening in the market around you. We want to open your eyes to a whole new way to look at trading. Every movement in a stock or market has a ripple effect on many other securities because everything is connected to each other. Learning to identify and exploit these connections can allow you to anticipate and capitalize on new opportunities you never thought possible. Don’t get tossed around by the market’s tidal waves. Instead, learn to surf them to shore for incredible profits and low risk!
Spread trading is a tool that you can use to discover and exploit these connections between securities. Everything is relative. SpreadTraderPro gives you the tools you need to discover great connections between securities. You can use these connections to trade pairs, hedged portfolios, or directional strategies. You can even use relative movements to create predictive buy and sell signals on indices and markets.
The possibilities are endless! SpreadTraderPro makes it easy to exploit them.
"An excellent resource for those serious about exploiting the opportunities inherent in spreads." - Current subscriber.
Who are we? We are the traders at Bigger Capital. We have over 30 years experience trading successfully. Our success is based on trading relationships among securities. One thing we have found that consistently makes money is finding pockets of relative value and exploiting them using spreads.
These pockets of relative values are nested in the connections. Discovering these connections is the challenge, isn’t it? The number of possible connections among all the securities in the market is nearly infinite! This type of data crunching requires computational analysis previously available only to sophisticated hedge funds. We have developed the tools for you to access this information quickly and easily.
Our information is adaptable to compliment any type of trading strategy!
- Do you trade statistical arbitrage? We have tools to help you find great spreads with solid mathematical foundations.
- Are you a day-trader looking to capitalize on moves in in-play stocks? We have tools to help you find the next move, other securities which may be impacted by the same forces moving the in-play names.

- Are you a value Investor? Our tools help you find pockets of relative value.

Reviewed your spread trading book. So much insight! You've made me realize what an amazing time it is to be a trader. I think if I learned trading from this perspective I would have a very solid business by now. I am learning so much so fast. Pure flow." –Eric Gong, New York.
"I just subscribed to your service and realized after the first run that I made a big mistake: I subscribed to the monthly service instead of the yearly. What a great amount of info it is! Thanks in advance for your answers, and thanks for a great piece of work. Please tell me how to change my subscription from monthly to yearly. I got the DECK/COST spread idea from your post titled "Deck is down 8%, on the scan," thanks! It was a massive move on a short-term time frame, but I also saw that the Z score wasn't that great which is why I decided to trade DECK options against the position in case DECK kept weak." –Peter M.
"Thanks again for making a great pair trading community and helpful tools." –Comarac.

Frequently Asked Questions:
What is spread trading?
Spread/pair trading is a strategy of trading one or more securities simultaneously by buying one security or multiple securities and shorting another security or multiple securities.
Why should I trade spreads?
Spread trading generates profit while minimizing net market exposure. With spreads, you can visualize relative opportunities and capitalize on them without taking unwanted risk. Spreads are relatively uncorrelated with market returns, and may even perform best in times of extreme volatility. Spreads emphasize the opportunity cost of every situation, and help traders look for the best opportunities available. Any strategy that you can use to trade stocks can also be traded with spreads, and spreads pinpoint the exact exposure you are looking for. Want exposure to the retail sector? Buy the retail ETF XRT as a spread to SPY. Think Target is the best big box retailer? Buy TGT - WMT. Whatever the view, implicitly you are choosing the best stock or sector. Spreads make it an explicit trading decision.
What type of trading account do I need to trade spreads?
You can use any equity trading account to trade spreads. You will find it easier to trade spreads if you have an account with a broker that lets you trade spreads directly, such as Interactive Brokers, but you can get started without this feature.
Who are the Bigger Capital Expert Spread Traders?
Our SpreadTraderPro expert traders have many years of experience in trading, computational finance, and investing. You can read our bios.
How do I decide which of the thousands of spreads on the daily spread scan I should trade?
Our spread trading booklet will explain in detail how to narrow down the thousands of spreads to the ones best suited to your individual risk profile. You may prefer to tailor your portfolio toward more trades with looser mathematical criteria, or you may want stricter criteria with fewer trades across which to diversify. You may want to consider a longer trading history, or you may only consider very recent data relevant. With SpreadTraderPro, we give you the tools you need to make the trading decisions.
Will every statistical spread trade make money for me?
Of course not. We typically run about 20 to 30 positions in our portfolio at any time, and we try to rotate capital at least every two to three months. We are disciplined about our exit strategy, and we make money consistently, but not every trade is a winner. Your risk profile may look similar, or it may not.
I did not get my spread scan today. What can I do?
The SpreadTraderPro scan e-mail is automatically sent to your inbox every morning (Gold Membership). If you have not received it yet and today is a US trading day (it is not a holiday), please e-mail us at info[at]biggercapital[dot]com.
There are too many spreads on my SpreadTraderPro scan that meet my criteria, and I cannot possibly trade all of them. What do I do?
Try to further narrow down your spreads. Look for stocks you are familiar with—ones you have a view on. Alternatively, look for spreads where the statistics are the most in your favor. Eliminate stocks with M&A news, or look for stocks with an upcoming catalyst such as earnings. Chart some of them using our Spread Analyzer. Post a question to our community of spread traders to see what they think. Trade a few, or trade them all if you have time and capital!
Now that I have several spread positions, I am having trouble keeping track of all of the target exit levels. What do you recommend?
We designed the “My Alerts” tab to alert you when spreads are at your target entry or exit levels. To set up an alert, bring up the spread in the Spread Analyzer. Click the “Create Alert” button at the top, and enter the alert levels. When you have multiple positions, it is helpful to see which spreads are near entry or exit levels at a glance. Just click on “My Alerts” on the top to view all active alerts. It is that simple.
What do the different ratings categories mean?
Statistical: The mathematical properties of the spread, such as cointegration and half-life.
Trading: How well you think you can use the spread to make money trading. This may be due to volatility or how well it seems to “behave” in your opinion.
Value: The current level relative to where you would enter a position in the spread.
What is the schedule of SpreadTraderPro Gold Membership daily scans?
Monday: Longer-term US single stocks
Tuesday: Shorter-term US single stocks
Thursday: Stocks versus SPY
Friday: FTSE single stocks
Plus some bonus scans.
How can I change my subscription from monthly to yearly?
You can cancel your subscription at any time using the cancel button on the payments.amazon.com site or on PayPal.com. You can then sign up for a yearly subscription.
