Metal-Miner Compression Trade Grinding To Convergence

Tyler Durden's picture

Yesterday, when we considered some of the possible compression trade opportunities presented by the suddenly jittery market, we highlighted a very attractive convergence trade between the Gold-Copper ratio and that of Cold/Copper Miner stocks, which for the mast part excluded the impact of the manipulated stock market indices and relied purely on alpha differentials.
