A momentum strategy would be based on this alpha, while a mean reverter works with beta. Beta should also be stable in time as opposed to alpha.sjevhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/17452562180989360928noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-1346045313195961352.post-58582297785888253552010-05-31T07:21:02.029-07:002010-05-31T07:21:02.029-07:00Nice.

I agree, points to a number of strategies (assuming the above pattern holds true historically and beyond), amongst them:<br /><br />- observing that undeperformers and overperformers tend to have momentum in their respective directions (short spread or long spread to ETF)<br /><br />- various portfolio based approaches where one tries to outperform the ETF over a period, spread to ETFJonathan Shorehttps://www.blogger.com/profile/08858453641392256663noreply@blogger.com
