Optimal split of orders across liquidity pools: a stochastic algorithm approach [article]

Sophie Laruelle
2010 arXiv   pre-print
Because of liquidity issues, the trading firms split large orders across several trading destinations to optimize their execution.  ...  To solve this problem we devised two stochastic recursive learning procedures which adjust the proportions of the order to be sent to the different venues, one based on an optimization principle, the other  ...  This paper is an in depth analysis of the optimal split of orders.  ...

Censored Exploration and the Dark Pool Problem [article]

Kuzman Ganchev, Michael Kearns, Yuriy Nevmyvaka, Jennifer Wortman Vaughan
2012 arXiv   pre-print
We prove that our algorithm converges in polynomial time to a near-optimal allocation policy; prior results for similar problems in stochastic inventory control guaranteed only asymptotic convergence and  ...  We introduce and analyze a natural algorithm for multi-venue exploration from censored data, which is motivated by the Dark Pool Problem of modern quantitative finance.  ...  First, note that the data set conflates the policy the brokerage used for allocation across the dark pools with the liquidity available in the pools themselves.  ...

Adaptive trading strategies across liquidity pools [article]

Bastien Baldacci, Iuliia Manziuk
2020 arXiv   pre-print
To solve the stochastic control problem of the trader we apply the finite difference method and also develop a deep reinforcement learning algorithm allowing to consider more complex settings.  ...  In this article, we provide a flexible framework for optimal trading in an asset listed on different venues.  ...  Finally, in [22, 23] , the authors build a stochastic algorithm to find the optimal splitting between liquidity pools, including dark venues.  ...

Do Dark Pools Harm Price Discovery?

Haoxiang Zhu
2013 The Review of financial studies  
Informed traders tend to trade in the same direction, crowd on the heavy side of the market, and face a higher execution risk in the dark pool, relative to uninformed traders.  ...  Dark pools are equity trading systems that do not publicly display orders. Dark pools offer potential price improvements but do not guarantee execution.  ...  If, however, W e = W d , then it is still optimal for the informed trader to set either M e = M or M d = M, although splitting is also optimal.  ...

Swarm intelligence algorithms for macroscopic traffic flow model validation with automatic assignment of fundamental diagrams

Adam Poole, Apostolos Kotsialos
2016 Applied Soft Computing  
A total of ten different algorithms were considered and compared with respect to their ability to converge to a solution, which remains valid for different sets of data.  ...  The design of the system used is highly generic and allows for a number of evolutionary and swarm intelligence algorithms to be used. Two UK sites have been used for testing it.  ...  Acknowledgement The authors would like to thank the Highways Agency for the use of MIDAS data, EPSRC for providing funding for this work and Ms.  ...

Market Microstructure Knowledge Needed for Controlling an Intra-Day Trading Process [article]

Charles-Albert Lehalle
2013 arXiv   pre-print
A great deal of academic and theoretical work has been dedicated to optimal liquidation of large orders these last twenty years.  ...  The optimal split of an order through time ('optimal trade scheduling') and space ('smart order routing') is of high interest to practitioners because of the increasing complexity of the market micro structure  ...  Acknowledgments Most of the data and graphics used here come from the work of Crédit Agricole Cheuvreux Quantitative Research group.  ...

2017 Geneva papers on risk and insurance. Issues and practice  
Such freedom of action is a quite remarkable feature and one that cannot be matched by lifelong contracts.  ...  We stress that the notion of actuarial fairness, which characterizes pooled annuity overlay funds, enables participants to join and exit the fund at any time.  ...  Jens Perch Nielsen was funded by the research grant ``Minimizing longevity and investment risk while optimizing future pension plans'', sponsored by the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries, UK.  ...
