Paul Teetor, who guest-blogged here about seasonal spreads, recently wrote an article about how to test for cointegration using R. Readers who don't want to pay for a copy of Matlab should find this free alternative with similar syntax quite interesting.

Interview on backtesting

I have given a 2-part interview (here and here) on the various nuances of backtesting on Most of the ideas have been covered in my book, but it does serve as a summary of what I consider to be the most important issues.

For those of you who are interested, I may be giving a workshop on general techniques in backtesting in London as well, in addition to my pairs trading workshop. Additional details will be available on at a later date.
