Suppose the market X is implemented by spot trading in J linearly independent assets, forming the rows of the J × K matrix . The corresponding spot prices are given by the column matrix S = (S1 , . . , SJ)'. 7, (θ1'D | θ2 'D) = θ1'(D | D')θ2 for any portfolios θ1 and θ2 . 3, a special case of the last example, elaborates on the case in which the market allows default-free borrowing and lending. Exercise 3 shows the consistency of the two examples with a calculation that highlights the advantages of a well-chosen inner product definition.

Suppose the market X is not purely forward. Then the following conditions are equivalent: 1. X is degenerate. 2. The set of frontier returns is a singleton. 3. Proof. (1 ( 2 . 2) Immediate. 3) Suppose . 5) holds for some scalars a and b. Since X is not purely forward, xП(0) ≠ 0. If , then (since 0 ∈ span(xП)) and therefore there are two values of b delivering two distinct frontier returns. 5). (3 1) Suppose return of the traded cash flow x, then for some . If R is the Therefore, all traded returns have the same expectation.

In either case, y is a convex combination of elements of X and therefore y ∈ X ∩ B. 8 EXERCISES 1. In the discussion leading to the definition of the market X as a linear subspace, conditions 2 and 3 combined are said to imply the possibility of short selling. Does condition 3 (x ∈ X --x ∈ X) alone imply the possibility of short selling? Explain. 2. 17. (b) Show that every complete arbitrage-free market can be implemented by trading in a unit discount bond and a set of forward markets in Arrow securities.
