Investment Dictionary - Arbitrage

The process by which investors exploit the price difference between two exactly alike securities by simultaneously buying one at a lower price and selling the other at a higher price (therby avoiding risk). This action locks in a risk-free profit for the arbitrageur (arb) (person engaging in arbitrage) and brings the prices back into equilibrium.
