I have been writing about ETF pairs trades for some time now and I thought I would bring readers up to date on two of my strategies that I recently had published on Seeking Alpha. Both strategies are based on long term trends so there is no chance that these trades will run out of steam any time soon.
Note: For evaluating performance, I use the price at market open the day after the article is published on Seeking Alpha.
Strategy No. 1
This strategy takes advantage of the "one shoe fits all" problem with the single EU currency, by pitting the iShares MSCI Germany ETF (NYSEARCA:EWG) against the iShares MSCI Italy Capped ETF (NYSEARCA:EWI).
