How can PCI be applied in trading?

The personal composite trading instrument &BRENT/WTI is used for Brent oil and WTI oil pair trading, as well as multi-year comparative analysis of the spread and the instruments themselves – Brent oil and WTI oil continuous futures contracts. For example, by building a percentage chart in the NetTradeX terminal for three instruments &BRENT/WTI, #C-BRENT and OIL (Fig.1) the 5-year dynamics of the ratio of prices of these two grades of crude oil and the price dynamics against USD for these grades of oil can be studied.
