I am following a very similar strategy to yours and would be happy to swap pairs ideas with you. I trade US, Europe & UK.

I am very interested in what kind of returns you have generated thusfar, and whether you monitor performance with metrics?

I presume you have been consistently trading with entry points at 2 stabdard deviations from the 20day ma of the ratio of the paired stocks?

Yes interested to hear your strategy, so far in this journal Ive have made 24%, I can definitely do better though, I haven't take as many trades, been busy with other business, still none the less Ive significantly outperformed the market which is most important, yes 2stdev from the mean is the signal level for me. What European stocks are you trading?

Hi and apologies for late response. I like what you are doing on this thread! I'm in process of building up some European/UK pairs to trade but its a slow process compared to the US. I'd be interested in hearing of what others think are good trades. I stick to the larger cap universe, for example ...

bp/shell
sainsbury/tesco
prudential/aviva
antofagasta/bhp billiton
adidas/puma
linde/air liquide
casino/carrefour
eni/total
basf/akzo
salzgitter/thyssen
e.on/edf
suez/veolia
