QWAFAFEW Denver - David Turkington from State Street
Crowded Trades by David Turkington, Senior Managing Director and Head of Portfolio and Risk Research at State Street Global Exchange
Crowded trades are often associated with bubbles. If investors can locate a bubble sufficiently early they can profit from the run up in prices. But in order to profit from a bubble investors must exit the bubble before the selloff erodes all of the profits. The authors propose two measures for managing exposure to bubbles. One measure, called asset centrality, locates crowded trading which often leads to the formation of bubbles. The other is a measure of relative value, which helps to separate inflationary crowding from deflationary crowding. Neither measure by itself is sufficient for identifying the full cycle of a bubble, but the authors show that together these measures have the potential to locate bubbles as they begin to emerge and to identify exit points before they fully deflate.
