Consistency of MLE for partially observed diffusions, with application in market microstructure modeling

  title={Consistency of MLE for partially observed diffusions, with application in market microstructure modeling},
  author={Sergey Nadtochiy and Yuan Yin},
This paper presents a tractable sufficient condition for the consistency of maximum likelihood estimators (MLEs) in partially observed diffusion models, stated in terms of stationary distributions of the associated test processes, under the assumption that the set of unknown parameter values is finite. We illustrate the tractability of this sufficient condition by verifying it in the context of a latent price model of market microstructure. Finally, we describe an algorithm for computing MLEs… 



Liquidity fluctuations and the latent dynamics of price impact

Market liquidity is a latent and dynamic variable. We propose a dynamical linear price impact model at high frequency in which the price impact coefficient is a product of a daily, a diurnal, and an

Maximum likelihood estimator for hidden Markov models in continuous time

The paper studies large sample asymptotic properties of the Maximum Likelihood Estimator (MLE) for the parameter of a continuous time Markov chain, observed in white noise. Using the method of weak


It is proved that the maximum likelihood estimator (MLE) of the parameter is strongly consistent under a rather minimal set of assumptions, which could form a foundation for the investigation of MLE consistency in more general dependent and non-Markovian time series.

A simple microstructural explanation of the concavity of price impact

This article provides a simple explanation of the asymptotic concavity of the price impact of a meta‐order via the microstructural properties of the market. This explanation is made more precise by a

Large tick assets: implicit spread and optimal tick size

In this work, we provide a framework linking microstructural properties of an asset to the tick value of the exchange. In particular, we bring to light a quantity, referred to as implicit spread,

Statistical estimation : asymptotic theory

when certain parameters in the problem tend to limiting values (for example, when the sample size increases indefinitely, the intensity of the noise ap proaches zero, etc.) To address the problem of

Optimal execution for portfolio transactions

In my thesis I explore the problem of optimizing trading strategies for complex portfolio transitions. Institutional investors run into this issue during periodic portfolio rebalancing or transition
