    Hey all. I am working on diversifying my strategy portfolio to try to include a broad spectrum of strategy types. I am trying to compile a list of different categories of strategies and was wondering if you guys would chime in on anything I missed.

    -- Trend Following
    -- Reversion to the Mean
    -- Arbitrage
    * Spread
    * Pairs
    -- Contrarian
    -- Fixed Income
    * Bonds (convertible)
    -- Portfolio Insurance (black-swan options)

    What sort of category would things like "short squeeze" fall under? Any other categories I missed?
