|The Bollinger Band Strategy is applied to the ETFs GLD (representing gold) and USO (representing crude oil). The fundamental reason for the cointegration of the 2 is that inflation drives up both assets and hence they are cointegrated. The pair is tested for cointegration first, then half-life and hedge ratio of pairs is calculated. A bollinger band mean reversion strategy is formed for this portfolio generating consistent stable returns.
