This demo uses MATLAB and the Technical Analysis (TA) Developer Toolbox (http://www.tadeveloper.com) to develop and backtest a pairs trading strategy. In particular, it is shown how a statistical arbitrage model can be created and backtested over a period of 10 years of historical data. The performace of the model is evaluated and a parameter sweep is performed. The resulting trading strategy is easily adaptable to any other pair of correlated financial instruments.
