Spread

The Spread study is used with comparable instruments that are trading with a spread between them such as:

  • two equities in same industry sector,
  • the A and B share for the same company,
  • two commodities futures

The spread can widen and narrow and can be used for Spread Trading, for example where the trader sells one instrument and buys the other when the spread is wider than historically norms.
