1 continuous-time selffinancing trading strategies are defined in dependence of a fixed given equivalent martingale measure P*. This dependence carries over to contingent claims that are generated by self financing trading strategies. This section shows that this dependence does not cause serious problems, since under suitable regularity conditions every P*- attainable contingent claim is also P*attainable for all ~* E ~(S). More than that, the valuation of a p*attainable contingent claim by means of the initial investment associated with the generating selffinancing trading strategy is independent of the equivalent martingale measure chosen.
