IMHO, the American election, Brexit referendum and Eurovision were the biggest arbing events this year (in this order).
Also, if your imagination can travel far aways, you could arb some other pairs.
I.E Trump's election vs USD/EUR, Brexit vs EUR/GBP.
Both pair's worked perfectly, provided that you were fast enough because Trump's winning speech was a game changer at least in the stock markets.

The night of the American Election i was looking at the TV that Florida was 50-50 for winning Trump or Clinton.Then i went to check the market for Trump win.The odds for Trump was 7.00,after 30 minutes the odds was 2.00.It was insane! You could have made a huge profit! I never understand why the bookies had the odds for Trump so big. I believed that if he won the Florida(because of 29 electors) ,the change for winning the elections was at least 40%.

Some guys tried to make money on the Italian Referendum but they took heavy looses.
The Italian Stock Market replied positively after the NO  and the EURO/USD after some initial looses replied also positively.

you have to be very careful

I stayed up all that night to get lucky and was watching the coverage from CNN and Bloomberg at the same time. The coverage was a set up that reminds of a banana republic. What was the catch. Ballots are not closing at the same time across the US. There is a big time difference. Taking into account that all mass media were/are pro Clinton and against Trump, they wanted to create a winning stream for Clinton in order to influence those who would decide within the booth what to vote. Statistics show that this is a big %. The media were with-holding the results that could favour Trump and were presenting predominantly pro Clinton results. You could see in the presented maps that when a big red concentration was about to be formed, there were counties with no results. On the contrary, blue concentrations were solid. That made me understand that a set up was on going and a rapid fall of Trump's odds was ante portas. I was right.

Nice creative thinking Arbusers! This is to remind us,that the odds aren't calibraded for the true % change of an outcome,but the public opinion on this outcome and media plays a huge role in it.We should thank them for this opportunity.God bless corrupted media! :)

I've got simple mind. For me anything that bears a risk (other than one side of a bet being cancelled) is not arbitrage, but trading. Even if you buy two stocks at the same time (like with arbs) you effectively buy a trading position which may lead to profit or loss. It's also your decision when to exit the trade so it's by all means actively managed position. I write it just for the sake of clarity, I don't  intend to argue about names :) Good luck with it anyway and thanks for answering!
