I'm going to join a hedge fund, which is implementing statistical arbitrage / quant trading on US equity. I am computer science / MFE background, but have quite limited understanding about statistical arbitrage. Therefore, I want to get prepared before on board, by reading some good books introducing this particular type of trading strategy.
The ideal books would be ones that provide in-depth explanation about the various strategies along with lots of examples, and it would the best that the examples are written in C++ as that's the language this firm is using.
Of course, it doesn't have to be above type of book. any book you think worth reading is very much appreciated.
