How about selling one to buy the other when price hike for one happens? Then we will be buying one asset cheap for selling to buy the other when it rises. !PIZZA


You can do this when the relationship is strong, but right now from the analysis , I can conclude there is little or no relationship between both asset, that's why I used the term weak because it's little and on the other hand I didn't want to say no relationship because there is a value for it.
The sincere truth is that you can sell to buy the other but it will be way to cheap for the sold asset while the other will be on a higher price.
