Correlation trade: As per theoretical models of CDO pricing, existence of correlation in a pool reduces the spreads of the equity tranche and increases the spreads on the senior tranches. When a trader takes a view on correlation in a pool and finds the market implied correlation to be different from his view, he trades on correlation.
