Optimal Mean Reversion Trading: Mathematical Analysis and Practical Applications

Optimal Mean Reversion Trading cover
Leung, Tim, and Xin Li.  (2016). Optimal Mean Reversion Trading: Mathematical Analysis and Practical Applications. (1st ed.) Singapore, World Scientific Publishing Company.

Optimal Mean Reversion Trading: Mathematical Analysis and Practical Applications provides a systematic study to the practical problem of optimal trading in the presence of mean-reverting price dynamics. It is self-contained and organized in its presentation, and provides rigorous mathematical analysis as well as computational methods for trading ETFs, options, futures on commodities or volatility indices, and credit risk derivatives.

This book offers a unique financial engineering approach that combines novel analytical methodologies and applications to a wide array of real-world examples. It extracts the mathematical problems from various trading approaches and scenarios, but also addresses the practical aspects of trading problems, such as model estimation, risk premium, risk constraints, and transaction costs. The explanations in the book are detailed enough to capture the interest of the curious student or researcher, and complete enough to give the necessary background material for further exploration into the subject and related literature.
