    Hi guys,

    Thinking of possibility in arb opportunity in SPDR gold ETF in Japan...

    1) Long SPDR Gold ETF in Japan: ~11500 * 1030 = 11,845,000 JPY
    2) Short the Gold Futures in CME: ~1500 * 100 = 150000 USD

    assuming JPYUSD ~ 0.0124, contract size is 12,500,000 JPY

    my question is what is my effective FX exposure and how many JPYUSD contracts should i hedge myself against currency risk????
