©R. Schwartz Equity Markets: Trading and StructureSlide 2 The Frictionless Environment

3
©R. Schwartz Equity Markets: Trading and StructureSlide 3 A Perfect, Frictionless World No transaction costs CAPM Stocks have intrinsic values What does this mean? a No. Shares Price Infinitely elastic demand to hold shares Infinite elasticity implies infinite liquidity – what explains it?

4
©R. Schwartz Equity Markets: Trading and StructureSlide 4 Stocks and Portfolios have Replicating Portfolios in a CAPM World The covariance of a stocks returns with the market portfolios returns can be replicated Cov (A,M) > Cov (B,M) > Cov (C,M) With proper weights on A and C, Cov ([A+ C],M) = Cov (B,M)

5
©R. Schwartz Equity Markets: Trading and StructureSlide 5 A Stock and it s Replicating Portfolio Stocks (portfolios) with the same covariance should be priced to yield the same expected return, E(r i ) If E(r i ) is too high, P i is too low vis-à-vis the replicating portfolio If E(r i ) is too low, P i is too high vis-à-vis the replicating portfolio Any price divergence between a stock and its replicating portfolio will be arbitraged away Arbs are the source of infinite liquidity in a CAPM world

7
©R. Schwartz Equity Markets: Trading and StructureSlide 7 The Efficient Market Hypothesis (EMH) Existing information cannot be exploited to realize above normal (risk adjusted) trading profits Weak form information = historical market information Semi-strong form information = weak form + publicly available info Strong form Information= semi-strong form + private info = the complete information set

13
©R. Schwartz Equity Markets: Trading and StructureSlide 13 Ω, The Information Set Information is Vast, Complex and Imprecise Yet, we can trivialize it. Here is…

15
©R. Schwartz Equity Markets: Trading and StructureSlide 15 Expectations Based on Information Three possible situations: Investors have homogeneous expectations There is asymmetric information Investors have divergent expectations based on information that they all possess Question Under which scenario will liquidity be greatest?

16
©R. Schwartz Equity Markets: Trading and StructureSlide 16 Liquidity: What is it? Difficult to define & measure but – You know when its not there Ability to trade in reasonable size, at a reasonable price, in a reasonable amount of time Without sufficient liquidity, a market will not function A quick operational definition: Lots of orders on the book Lots of order flow

29
©R. Schwartz Equity Markets: Trading and StructureSlide 29 Illiquidity s Footprints in Transaction Records Relevant Concepts: Intertemporal correlation Autocorrelation Serial correlation First order autocorrelation Higher order autocorrelation Serial cross-correlation

30
©R.

Market Factor +,-, or what?

31

High explicit trading costs (commissions and fees) High implicit costs (bid-ask spreads and market impact) Accentuated intra-day volatility Capital gains taxes A feeling that our markets are not fair, that others participants will benefit at your expense A feeling that prices adjust so quickly to news that you will never be able to buy profitably when there is good news, or will be unable to cut your losses by selling before the market has fully responded to bad news
