Arbitrage: Refers to buying and selling two different types of futures contracts at the same time.nArbitrage can generally be divided into three categories: cross -term arbitrage, cross -market arbitrage and cross -commodity arbitrage.n1. Sort -term arbitrage is the most common type in arbitrage transactions. It is used to make a profit when the normal price gap between the same product but different habitats is made of a bull market (Bull Spread) and the bull market (Bull Spread) and Bear Spread (Bear Spread. For example, in the bull market arbitrage, buy a metal contract that recently traded month, and sell metal contracts in the long -term delivery month. The amplitude; the opposite of the bear market arbitrage, that is, selling the recent delivery month contract, buying a long -term delivery month contract, and hoping that the price decline in the long -term contract price is less than the price of the recent contract.n2.

For example, between metal, between agricultural products, and between metal and energy, arbitrage transactions can be performed.nThe reason why traders conduct arbitrage transactions are mainly because of the low risk of arbitrage, arbitrage transactions can provide some protection for the unexpected or losses caused by violent price fluctuations, but the profitability of arbitrage is also more direct transaction than direct transactions.
