The aggregate short holdings of such agents, or equivalently the aggregate long holdings of all other agents, is known as the market portfolio.

The sterling payoff relation mayaiso be written as Yi = (EYi/Ez)Z + Yi[Ya - (EYa/Ez)z] for each security i, noting that the exchange rate, and thus Exact Arbitrage 51 Ez, is positive. Then applying the martingale property we have the sterling pricing relations for each security i where qi and qa are sterling prices and c=8Ez/Ez. The constant c may be interpreted as the dollar discount rate multiplied by the currency risk factor, that is, by the ratio of the expectation of the exchange rate under the martingale probabilities to this expectation under the given arpitrary probabilities.

Assume that p is an arbitrage-free system of prices and Ö and 1t some corresponding discount factor and martingale probabilities.
