    Arbitrage is the simultaneous purchase and sale of an asset to profit from an imbalance in the price.
    It is a trade that profits by exploiting the price differences of identical or similar financial instruments on different markets or in different forms.

    The simplest form of arbitrage is purchasing an asset in the market where the price is lower and simultaneously selling the asset in the market where the asset’s price is higher.

    One term which I learnt recently is
    HODL

    Now, I used to think HODL as just misspelling for hold. However, I was surprised to know it stands for "Hold On for Dear Life"
