An arbitrage trading opportunity is a situation, when at one station an item is offered for a 'sell' price, while at the same time at another station there is a 'buy' order for the item, for a price higher than the 'sell' price one can buy the item at the first station.Pros: High volume of items available to be bought-delivered-sold.

Someone listed a 'sell' order of 'Raptor' at 'Amarr VIII' for 17,500,000 ISK.
At the same time, at 'Botane - IChooseYou Market and Industry'
there is a 'buy' order, paying for 'Raptor' 21,070,000 ISK. All you need to do, is to buy the Raptor ar Amarr and deliver it
to Botane, selling it for a price higher than you paid for it. You take the risk you may be shot on the way.
Also, you invest your time to perform all the required jumps.
At Botane you earn 21,070,000 - 17,500,000 = 3,570,000 ISK, minus sales tax. The amount of the sales tax depends on your
Accounting skill - between 3.6% and 8.0% see here
That is how eve-trading.net reports it (for tax assumed 3.6%): There are more than one 'Raptor' available to buy at Amarr and sell at Botane, as they are sold by different prices, they are reported in separate rows.
Station trading is when a pilot not leaving a station, performs all the trading there. The profit comes from buying an item for the 'buy' price and selling it for a 'sell' price, as 'buy' price is always lower than the 'sell' price. A pilot-trader places an order at a 'buy' price, waiting for the order to be filled. Once filled, the trader places a 'sell' order of the purchased item, earning the difference between 'buy' and 'sell' price levels, minus tax and the broker fee. The factors involved in the calculation what the actual profit is are: Broker's fee, Relist fee, and Sales tax.
This tool does not support Station Trading.Pros: No risk of losing the purchased item, as you never leave a station.
