Pairs Trading & Calculating Long & Strong With Energy (XEL – CMS)

Tom Cook
Equity Pairs Strategist

(Xcel Energy – CMS Energy) We had a nice close on the pair for Monday’s market action, as the pair pushed above our target mean and we exited at $0.73 spread value. Now I will be watching the pair for future opportunities to go for another long entry in the range of $0.50 to $0.00. Let’s keep in mind, that our lead stock “XEL” goes ex-dividend $0.38 on Wednesday 3/14. With that in mind, if we catch the pair long on Tuesday, just be aware that after “XEL” goes ex-dividend, it should be an even better opportunity for trade location. Ok Tuesday, & Pouring On The Steam! ..

  • Pair: XEL – CMS
  • Sector: Energy Industry
  • Current Distance from mean: 0.01
  • Correlation: 0.99
  • Spread Range: 0.50 to 0.00

Tuesday & Steady Ahead With Pairs Trading Strategies!


The commentary above is excerpted from the ShadowTrader Pro Pairs Trader newsletter. The newsletter is a stock only service designed for active equity traders who are interested in pairs trading of equities long and short simultaneously so as to profit from divergences while maintaining a market neutral bias.

The daily report spotlights one equity pair which trades in a definable range and whole stocks are positively correlated. The objective of the newsletter is to present one such pair daily that may be coming into play currently, giving self-directed traders the opportunity to put the pair on watch for possible entry. Additionally, Pairs Trader sends out specific trade recommendations intraday on selected equity pairs. These trades are actively managed via real-time text alerts and are tracked in the Pairs Trader Portfolio.

Specific pairs trade recommendations are posted to MyTrade as we find them. The ideas are always presented as a matched equity pair, alerting subscribers to purchase one stock while simultaneously shorting another, often within the same sector or industry group. Trade alerts clearly explain the analysis behind the setups and also educate newer traders on basic pairs trading concepts such as spread, ratio, correlation, beta/market neutrality, and more. These trades are added to the ShadowTrader Pairs Trader Portfolio which is updated nightly and included in each day’s edition of the Pairs Trader newsletter. The newsletter is sent out each night assuring that users have ample time in the morning to digest the information.<
