Hello, I'm a self-taught programmer, mostly coding for fun during my freetime.

I'm trying to learn stuffs on my own, but sometimes Google and tutorials just won't do it !

I know a bit of Python, PHP and Java. I recently got myself interested in JavaScript and CoffeeScript.

Thanks for the answer and references to academic readings. I'll sure have a look into this.

comment Usefulness of simultaneously buying triangular and multiple arbitrages on the Forex
Thanks for answering. I was referring to size-n (n>3) arbitrage because I wonder how useful it is to add one or more intermediate currencies into regular triangular arbitrage. My question might then be: could (theoretically speaking, at least) trading bigger arbitrages yield other/new risk-free profit opportunities it would have been absolutely impossible to get by just trading regular (size-3) triangular arbitrages ? If I get your answer right: all size-n (n>3) arbitrages can be broken down into smaller triangular arbitrages, and it's just as good to trade all these triangular arbitrage away.

@PhilH I mean the second triangular arbitrage you describe. My triangular arbitrage would be, for example : long EUR/USD, short EUR/GBP and short GBP/USD.
