This chapter provides detailed descriptions for a host of equities trading strategies, including pertinent mathematical formulas for portfolio construction, estimation, and holding periods, etc. Momentum-based strategies include price-momentum, earnings-momentum, residual momentum, and, more loosely, strategies based on moving averages. Other factor-based strategies include value, which is based on the book-to-price ratio, low-volatility anomaly, strategies based on using implied volatility from options to forecast future stock returns, as well as multifactor portfolios combining two or more factors, such as momentum and value. Mean-reversion strategies include pairs trading and its generalizations to multi-stock portfolios, including using weighted regression, and, more loosely, channel and support-and-resistance based strategies. The chapter further discusses statistical arbitrage using mean-variance portfolio optimization with constraints such as dollar-neutrality, event-driven strategies such as cash and stock mergers, strategies using machine learning techniques such as k-nearest neighbor algorithms, and market making. The chapter also discusses in detail trading strategies based on combining a large number of faint trading signals (alphas) to enhance the resultant portfolio performance.
