Time-Zone Arbitrage

A form of stale price arbitrage where the pricing discrepencies are due to the primary markets for the underlying securities being closed at the times that the fund is traded. Note that time zone arbitrage is sometimes mistakenly used if it were a pure synonym for stale price arbitrage. These are not synonyms since stale prices can also be due to illiquid stocks or bonds that are not traded frequently.
