A Mean-Field Control Problem of Optimal Portfolio Liquidation with Semimartingale Strategies

  title={A Mean-Field Control Problem of Optimal Portfolio Liquidation with Semimartingale Strategies},
  author={Guanxing Fu and Ulrich Horst and Xiaonyu Xia},
We consider a mean-field control problem with c`adl`ag semimartingale strategies arising in portfolio liquidation models with transient market impact and self-exciting order flow. We show that the value function depends on the state process only through its law, and that it is of linear-quadratic form and that its coefficients satisfy a coupled system of non-standard Riccati-type equations. The Riccati equations are obtained heuristically by passing to the continuous-time limit from a sequence of…

Self-exciting price impact via negative resilience in stochastic order books

Most of the existing literature on optimal trade execution in limit order book models assumes that resilience is positive. But negative resilience also has a natural interpretation, as it models



Càdlàg semimartingale strategies for optimal trade execution in stochastic order book models

We analyse an optimal trade execution problem in a financial market with stochastic liquidity. To this end, we set up a limit order book model in continuous time. Both order book depth and resilience

Optimal trade execution under small market impact and portfolio liquidation with semimartingale strategies

We consider an optimal liquidation problem with instantaneous price impact and stochastic resilience for small instantaneous impact factors. Within our modelling framework, the optimal portfolio

A Mean Field Game of Optimal Portfolio Liquidation

This work proves that the solution to the mean field game (MFG) can be characterized in terms of a forward-backward stochastic differential equation (FBSDE) with a possibly singular terminal condition on the backward component or, equivalently, on an FBSDE with a finite terminal value yet a singular driver.

When to Cross the Spread? Trading in Two-Sided Limit Order Books

The problem of optimal trading in illiquid markets is addressed when the deviations from a given stochastic target function describing, for instance, external aggregate client flow are penalized, and it is shown that the optimal control can be characterized via buy, sell, and no-trade regions.

Dynamic optimal execution in a mixed-market-impact Hawkes price model

It is shown that Poissonian arrivals of orders lead to quite robust price manipulation strategies in the sense of Huberman and Stanzl, and a particular set of conditions on the Hawkes model balances the self-excitation of the order flow with the resilience of the price, excludes price manipulation Strategies, and gives some market stability.

Drift dependence of optimal trade execution strategies under transient price impact

We give a complete solution to the problem of minimizing the expected liquidity costs in the presence of a general drift when the underlying market impact model has linear transient price impact with

Optimal trade execution under endogenous order flow

We consider a novel portfolio liquidation model with self-exciting order flow in which a large investor’s trading activity has an impact of future order flow. We allow for both instantaneous and

A new approach to solve optimal control problems of the monotone follower type by using the convexity of the cost functional to derive a first order characterization of optimal policies based on the Snell envelope of the objective functional's gradient at the optimum.

Multidimensional singular control and related Skorokhod problem: sufficient conditions for the characterization of optimal controls

We characterize the optimal control for a class of singular stochastic control problems as the unique solution to a related Skorokhod reflection problem. The considered optimization problems concern
