Now, for the path with RHS of the equation: This method works with mid quotes as well as with bids and asks. You can start with either all bids or asks but will have to switch to the other each time you need to flip the given quote. I was truck up with this. I tried to it with bid-ask spreads and was confused. I request you to kindly post one example and the explanation. I once again appreciate your voluntary contribution in educating and sharing knowledge.
This wil result in. I found the whole triangle business rather confusing and time-consuming and sat down one day to come up with this approach. Hope people will benefit from this. I dont see how you you know when to take bid or ask - and why do you say chf is base currency?
You will be given the base currency in the exam and will be asked to calculate arb profit starting with a given amount of the base currency. Thanks for sharing CFASniper.
Once the arbitrage is identified by comparing the quoted exchange rate i. I find it very difficult to figure out - shall we start to buy the undervalued currency, or shall we sell the overvalued currency? I have been struggling with the EOL question 15 and 16 of the study session 4 reading It would be great if you could light up a very confused mind! But this till confuses me.. If you take the path that gives you less than 1, just go the other way. And thank you, CFAsniper! You really saved my ass on this one.
Thanks, one more question from CFA , this is eg 4, i get 0. As you rightly pointed out, you could make EUR 0. The probability of this question showing up is actually higher than you think. I also use the method CFAsniper has described because i learned it in college. If you practice this a few times, you can get the answer in less than a minute. Maybe even around seconds…. When you convert from base to foreign , you get less — use Bid — its a multiplication When you convert back to base from foriegn , you get less again — use Ask — its a division.
Question - why would you buy at the bid? Triangular currency arbitrage made easy hopefully Posted by: May 7, You would buy the counter at the bid price with your base currency. So if its USD: JPY, and you are starting with 1, USD which is your base currency and bid is sell base-buy counter, therefore you are selling your base currency 1, USD to buy counter at the bid rate. You buy at the ask and sell at the bid. Skip to main content.

When you are buying you use bid rates. Schweser page I calculate: But the answer given is 18, MXN Could you please clarify…. CFASniper May 15th, 1: If you take time to grasp the actual concept, it will be easier still.
KickinTheBricks May 16th, 9: If there is no arbitrage opportunity, the answer will be 1. KickinTheBricks May 16th, KickinTheBricks May 17th, That one is pretty advanced. Might be a job for CFAsniper. Example 4, in case anyone else wants to try. ITAdministator May 17th, CFASniper May 17th, 2: CFASniper May 17th, 3: JaRvEy May 17th, 5: You cannot go wrong if you use the simple prinicple that you cannot win against the dealer.
