Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course focuses on the determinants of transactions prices and liquidity in markets for traded securities. While transaction prices can change almost instantly – and at high frequency – asset prices typically are proxies of hypothetical long-term values. In this sense this sequence of courses complements, and builds on, the sequence of asset pricing courses by studies of short term determinants of real transactions prices; i.e. of bid- and ask-prices rather than mid-prices.
Obviously price determination will be closely linked to market organization. Prices in unorganized search markets (OTC) will differ from prices established in organized auction or dealership markets, and accordingly also market participation and liquidity. The different organizational forms of markets and the way they affect price formation and liquidity are the key elements of the elementary course on market microstructure I. The more advanced course on market microstructure II will address the strategic elements of market design, transparency, competition between different organizations (intermodal competition) as well as market failures and regulation.

Course Outline:

1. Introduction

2. Measuring Liquidity

3. Trading Systems:

a. Market Makers: Bid-Ask Spreads
b. Auction Markets: Limit Order Books
c. Search Markets: Intermediary Networks and OTC

4. Market Participation and Liquidity

5. Market Design
