  1. Forex Arbitrage
    A trading strategy that is used by forex traders who attempt to make a profit on the inefficiency in
    the pricing of currency pairs. The strategy involves reacting quickly to opportunities, and is usually
    accomplished through the use of computers. As with other arbitrage strategies, the act of exploiting
    pricing inefficiencies will actually correct the problem in the market. For this reason, these
    opportunities are often only around for a very short time. Arbitrage currency trading requires the
    availability of real-time pricing quotes and the ability react quickly as opportunities present

    themselves.Forex arbitrage calculators are available to help find these opportunities more quickly,
    but as with all software, programs and platforms used in retail forex trading, it is important to try
    them out in a demo account if possible. Trying out multiple products before deciding on one is the only
    way to determine what is best for the forex trader.
