Explanation:
ARBITRAGE = arbitrage : the practice of dealing on 2 markets almost simultaneously in order to profit from differing exchange rates. Also when dealing in commodities, bills of exchange or currencies. It also happens when prices and returns are fixed (cf. speculation) not much risk involved here. In USA often referred to as "arb".

There is also such a thing as reverse arbitrage and soft arbitrage. But that can be saved for a future date as and when you need it!

FOREIGN EXCHANGE (FOREX ou FX)= change : la devise d'un pays et l'achat et la vente de ces devises.

FIXED INCOME (FIXED INTEREST SECURITIES)= valeur à revenu fixe, ex : boligations, fonds d'état...)

EQUITY = capital social, fonds propres : très souvent les actions d'une société, plutot que le capital proveneant de titulaires des valeurs à revenu fixe.

A la prochaine,
