@amazinggrace,

you are right. arbitage betting is less riskier than forex.

Here is a excerpt from wikipedia:
Quote:
In economics and finance, arbitrage is the practice of taking advantage of a price differential between two or more markets: striking a combination of matching deals that capitalize upon the imbalance, the profit being the difference between the market prices. When used by academics, an arbitrage is a transaction that involves no negative cash flow at any probabilistic or temporal state and a positive cash flow in at least one state; in simple terms, a risk-free profit.

So, i guess it`s just more like a differential profit style.
