Issue and Motivation Previous studies: The impact of opening and closing calls on market quality Price efficiency and market quality when certain stocks move from one exchange to another or jointly list on different exchange Experimental comparisons between the call and continuous auction methods The impact of trading method switching from call to continuous method or vice versa Comparison between open-to-open return volatility and close- to-close return volatility
Issue and Motivation Why do we do this research? Most of previous studies pay more attention to the impact of a trading mechanism on the price efficiency and market quality. Further examining trading behavior could be helpful to shed light on the impact of a trading mechanism on market quality.

Economides and Schwartz (1995) question the importance of immediacy for many public traders.
