    I fear that a noble price doesn't help solving the task of making money in the markets (LTCM) :)

    The smarter you are - the longer it takes to make money.

    Good trading

  2. A problem with cointegration is that the error term is assumed to be N(0,1) ... if I am not mistaken. If this is true, then cointegration pairing is worthless. Say that on T=100, that the residual is 2 standard deviation away. For T=101, there is NO mean reversion.

    Again, I might be wrong .. dead wrong.

    Nobel prize itself is pretty good money, even if you share it with another guy :p
