Trading of securities in open marketplaces has been around for hundreds of years. It is only until recent years that mathematics has played an increasingly important role in market analysis and trading system design.By and large, active market participants can be classified into two groups based on their trading strategies: trend followers and contra-trend traders.
This tutorial addresses the stochastic control foundation for popular strategies from both camps. Various market models will be considered including geometric Brownian motion, models with regime switching, and mean reversion models. Simply threshold type trading rules will be developed under each model. This tutorial consists of three lectures. The first lecture is devoted to trend following (momentum trading) under regime switching models. The second one is about mean reversion trading, and the final lecture will focus on pairs trading.
