Question

2. Assume you are a trader with Deutsche Bank. From the quote screen on your computer terminal, you notice that Dresdner Bank is quoting ?1.0342/$1.00 and Credit Suisse is offering SF1.5030/$1.00. You learn that UBS is making a direct market between the Suisse franc and the euro, with a current ?/SF quote of 0.6750. You therefore came up with the following: Dresdner Bank: ?1.0342 = $1.00 Credit Suisse: SF1.5030 = $1.00 UBS: ?0.6750 = SF1.00 Assume you have $1,500,000 with which to conduct an arbitrage. 1. Show that triangular arbitrage is possible. Then, explain the steps that would reflect triangular arbitrage, and compute the profits from this strategy.
