The exchange rate effect of multi-currency risk arbitrage

Published in Journal of International Money and Finance. 2014, vol. 47, p. 304-331
Abstract Carry trade arbitrage strategies typically involve multiple cur- rencies. Limits to arbitrage in such a setting not only slow the adjustment to the fundamental equilibrium, but can also generate transitory over- or undershooting of each exchange rate in accor- dance with the marginal risk contribution of each speculative position to the overall arbitrage risk. The paper uses a natural experiment to identify a particular global arbitrage opportunity and shows that arbitrage risk hedging modifies the exchange rate dynamics in the predicted manner. New spectral methods are applied to obtain a more precise inference on the cross-sectional trading pattern of the arbitrageurs
