Abstract: New econometric tools are developed that allow for the monitoring of deviations from arbitrage parities. The econometric methodology is applied in order to test for the stability of the Covered Interest Rate Parity, the Triangular Arbitrage Parity, and the American Depository Receipt Parity. Economically relevant variables that possibly result in arbitrage parity violations are analyzed to connect our empirical results to the limits to arbitrage literature. In addition, we also check whether (possible) arbitrage parity deviations can be connected to historical events such as the failure of Lehman Bros. or to central bank interventions.
