Dear Khurshid,

Unfortunately, your question is not very well defined. The term
"Inefficiency" in Economics have many interpretations. It could be
inefficiency to society, in which case Banks are highly inefficient,
because they are discriminating Monopolies, it could be inefficiency
of the Bank, namely the Bank does not maximizes profit, and it could
be inefficiency in terms of rational expectation theory, namely price
movements in the market are not random.

Before you go on, my suggestion to you is to make some search of the
academic literature either in google scholar or econlit.
