10) a From there, we obtain as another easy result S BtH (g) = S t 0 t f (s) dBs (g) = g(s) ds. 0 Furthermore, the S-transform of the classical Itˆ o integral b b Xt dBt S (g) = a b (SXt )(g)g(t) dt = a S(Xt )(g) a b a Xt dBt satisfies d S(Bt )(g) dt. dt As the S-transform is injective, it also can be taken to define the above integrals. Drawing the conclusion by analogy, one can accordingly define the b fractional integral of Wick–Itˆ o type a Xt dBtH to be the unique random variable with S-transform b S a Xt dBtH b (g) = S(Xt )(g) a d S(BtH )(g) dt.

So, existing arbitrage possibilities cannot be exploited, or in other words, the respective strategies are not admissible. 9990 140 120 100 0 1 2 Time t 3 4 Fig. 10 Exclusion of arbitrage by restricting trading strategies.

The weak convergence is proven by showing the identity of the moment properties as well as tightness and uses a general result of convergence of random variables that is due to Billingsley (1968). However, for the range of Hurst parameters standing for antipersistence, the original result by Billingsley (1968) proving tightness cannot be applied. Instead, a generalized version of the tightness criterion is needed, derived by (Genest et al. (1996), p. 332). We leave out the quite technical details and provide a not that rigorous, but all the more illustrative proof.
