In a market arbitrage trade, an arbitrageur would sell the security that is priced higher in one market while, at the same time, buying that same security in the market where it's priced lower. However, an alternative to this is to assume that the factors are latent variables and employ factor analysis - akin to the form used in psychometrics - to extract them. The reward is the main driver, so if there wasn't any expectation of gain, there would be no use for speculation. These models are born out of modern portfolio theorywith the capital asset pricing model CAPM as the prototypical result.

It also ignores capital flows across borders, which is a much larger determinant of currency exchange rates, especially within a short time period. Rational Pricing[ edit ] Under Rational pricingusually derivative prices are calculated such that they are arbitrage -free with respect to more fundamental equilibrium determined securities prices. When the investor is long finance long the asset and short selling short the portfolio or vice versa he has created a position which has a positive expected return the difference between asset return and portfolio return and which has a net-zero exposure to any macroeconomic factor and is therefore risk free other than for firm specific risk.

Haas, D. How Interest Rate Swaps Work Generally, the two parties in an interest rate swap are trading a fixed-rate and variable-interest rate. It assumes that each investor will hold a unique portfolio with its own particular array of betas, as opposed to the identical "market portfolio". Source s : Me Finance degree. Where today's price is too high: The implication is that at the end of the period the portfolio would have appreciated at the rate implied by the APT, whereas the mispriced asset would have appreciated at less than this rate. In some ways, the CAPM can be considered a "special case" of the APT in that the securities market line represents a single-factor model of the asset price, where beta is exposed to changes in value of the market.

The arbitrageur could therefore: Today: 1 short sell the mispriced asset 2 buy the portfolio with the proceeds. Note that an alternate, although less common approach, is to apply a "fundamental valuation" method, such as the T-modelwhich instead relies on accounting information, attempting to model return based on the company's expected financial performance.

Implementation[ edit ] As with the CAPM, the factor-specific betas are found via a linear regression of historical security returns on the factor in question. Google Scholar Chionis, D.

Under the APT, an asset is mispriced if its current price diverges from the price predicted by the model. Someone might try to buy the basket of goods from the United States and sell it in Europe.

Mechanics[ edit ] In the APT context, arbitrage consists of trading in two assets — with at least one being mispriced. Although purchasing power parity makes sense, it cannot really establish foreign exchange rates, because of the difficulties in equalizing the rates if it should differ from parity.
