FxWirePro: How about deriving returns even in bearish cryptocurrency trend? A run through on triangular arbitrage opportunity

We have been noticing blood bath in the cryptocurrency space, as BTCUSD slides more than -18.19% this week, while ETHUSD tumbles about -27.43%, and so is the case with LTCUSD to show more than -25.77% dips.

Wouldn’t you astonished you can still make money even in such bearish streaks? Because, cryptocurrency space strikes a lot of attention for its unusual volatility and pricing differences in different exchanges, that also poses considerable risk for extensive returns.

On the risk perspective, arbitrage is the strategy that appears to be low-risk though.

While the triangular arbitrage has been quite unique than other trading techniques, unlike the direct arbitrage trading method, it explores three unalike exchanges. 

Well, for instance, one buys coin A on Exchange X, sells the same in exchange Y for conversion to coin B, in turn, again sells that coin B on Exchange Z for even more handsome returns. 

All these “phases” of the arbitrage process likely to fetch luring yields which essentially wouldn’t have to be distinctive in size.

As shown in the above diagram, let’s suppose that one can buy 1 LTC with BTC at Binance, which in turn, the same LTC can be utilized for buying 1 ETH at WEX. Thereby, one can derive considerable returns as you could easily make out that the price of LTC is dipping against bitcoin at Binance, but the same is gaining against ETH at WEX.
