No-arbitrage of second kind in countable markets with proportional transaction costs


  • Bruno Bouchard
  • Erik Taflin


Motivated by applications to bond markets, we propose a multivariate framework for discrete time financial markets with proportional transaction costs and a countable infinite number of tradable assets. We show that the no-arbitrage of second kind property (NA2 in short), recently introduced by Rasonyi for finite-dimensional markets, allows us to provide a closure property for the set of attainable claims in a very natural way, under a suitable efficient friction condition. We also extend to this context the equivalence between NA2 and the existence of many (strictly) consistent price systems.
