Economatica has a powerful yet easy to use module for identifying, analyzing, and back-testing pair trades (long/short).

We used the Economatica system to find all possible pairs of the top 200 ETFs by the dollar value of the 30-day Average Daily Trading Volume.

Out of the universe of 40,000 pairs analyzed in a few moments, the Economatica system identified 29 pairs whose current ratio sits currently more than 2.5 standard deviations from the mean as of 9/24/2018. In addition, in making this selection we asked that only highly correlated pairs (80% or greater) with volatility under 50% were considered.
