SGX Launches “Trading Strategies Series” Investor Education Series

Singapore Exchange today launched the “Trading Strategies Series” of articles for investors.

Aimed at making professional trading methods accessible to a wider group of investors, the “Trading Strategies Series” is part of investor education efforts by SGX to broaden the knowledge of market participants and over time, enhance market depth.

The series will kick off with six articles on “pair trading”, a trading strategy that can be used in both bull and bear markets. This strategy starts off with the investor selecting two financial products (for example, two stocks, two futures contracts or two exchange traded funds) with prices that tend to move together or are, in other words, highly correlated. When the price ratio of this pair exceeds their normal range, the investor will buy (or go long) one of the two stocks and sells (or go short) a position in another.

Various financial products such as Extended Settlements Contracts (ES), Exchange Traded Funds (ETF)  and Index Futures contracts will be placed under the spotlight in the “pair trading” articles. Written in simple English, the articles provide a step-by-step guide on the trading method, from the identification of highly correlated pairs to simulations using real-live historical data.

The “Trading Strategies Series” of articles are available to the public at
