Arbitrage and Special Situations

In the past, these have been the domain of professional investors, who have access to lower brokerage rates.

In the world of arbitrage and special situations, the high retail brokerage rates formed an almost impassable barrier of entry for lay investors.

Simply their brokerage costs often exceeded any potential profit in the trade.

With the advance of the Internet and with the lower rates now available, the world of stock arbitrage and other special situations are opened up to the masses.

Aggressive investors can learn how to identify the bet with the least risk, which can enable the investor to take very large positions and produce results that can be spectacular.
