What are the risks to investors of currency arbitrage?
Given the nature of the portfolio strategy, the primary risk is trade execution. Due to high leverage, a delayed or erroneous futures or sport market trade can potentially wipe out a substantial portion of the fund. Another risk, although very unlikely, would be a sudden inter-trade change in a currency's underlying interest rate due to a unanticipated central bank policy move.
