Rare Events Analysis of High-Frequency Equity Data

  title={Rare Events Analysis of High-Frequency Equity Data},
  author={Dragos Bozdog and Ionuţ Florescu and Khaldoun Khashanah and Jim Wang},
  journal={Stevens: Financial Engineering (Topic)},
In this work we present a methodology to detect rare events which are defined as large price movements relative to the volume traded. We analyze the behavior of equity after the detection of these rare events. We provide methods to calibrate trading rules based on the detection of these events and illustrate for a particular trading rule. We apply the methodology to tick data for thousands of equities over a period of five days. In order to draw comprehensive conclusions, we group the equities… 

Detection of rare events in multidimensional financial datasets with zonoid depth functions

This study constructs a framework around the development of new techniques that extracts information out of big datasets that spans the areas of data science and financial model analysis and investigates methods to reduce the complexity of the analysis, map large amounts of data and construct a model to detect rare events on multivariate financial datasets.

Evaluating performance capacity of high frequency trading strategies, based on comparative ratios and market inefficiency at Helsinki Stock Exchange

High frequency trading is not only about the speed but also about the effective trading strategies it uses to perform the trade. Performance capacity evaluation of high frequency trading strategies

A slightly depressing jump model: intraday volatility pattern simulation

Hawkes processes have been finding more applications in diverse areas of science, engineering and quantitative finance. In multi-frequency finance various phenomena have been observed, such as

Tranched Value Securities

Structured financial products and derivatives were one of the major financial innovations since 18th century, which improve market completeness by transforming risk-sharing mechanisms. Since then,

Risk and Reward Preferences under Time Pressure

Financial decision making under time pressure, though ubiquitous, is poorly understood; classical and behavioral finance are silent about the time required for a decision to be made. In an

The challenges and implications of the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) and of its revision (MiFID II, MiFIR) on the efficiency of financial markets

This chapter will focus on the investigation of challenges underlined by the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) in view of the financial market efficiency. This chapter provides a


The model was constructed using an interdisciplinary approach that includes game theory, machine learning, cognitive science and systems theory to study flash crashes in complex human-AI systems and results indicate the multi-agent system in question is prone to cause flash crashes.

Relationship between Trading Volume and Security Prices and Returns

The relationship between trading volume and securities prices is a complex one which, when understood properly, can lead to many insights in portfolio theory. Over the past forty years, much work has

Stock Prices and Volume

The authors undertake a comprehensive investigation of price and volume co-movement using daily New York Stock Exchange data from 1928 to 1987. They adjust the data to take into account well-known

A Theory of Intraday Patterns: Volume and Price Variability

This article develops a theory in which concentrated-trading patterns arise endogenously as a result of the strategic behavior of liquidity traders and informed traders. Our results provide a partial

Autoregressive Conditional Duration: A New Model for Irregularly Spaced Transaction Data

This paper proposes a new statistical model for the analysis of data which arrive at irregular intervals. The model treats the time between events as a stochastic process and proposes a new class of

A theory of the interday variations in volume

In an adverse selection model of a securities market with one informed trader and several liquidity traders, we study the implications of the assumption that the informed trader has more information

Dynamic Volume-Return Relation of Individual Stocks

We examine the dynamic relation between return and volume of individual stocks. Using a simple model in which investors trade to share risk or speculate on private information, we show that returns

Equity trading volume and volatility: Latent information arrivals and common long-run dependencies

This article examines the behavior of equity trading volume and volatility for the individual firms composing the Standard & Poor's 100 composite index. Using multivariate spectral methods, we find

Cross-correlations between volume change and price change

This work analyzes 14,981 daily recordings of the Standard and Poor's (S & P) 500 Index over the 59-year period 1950–2009, and finds power-law cross-correlations between |R| and |R̃| by using detrendedCross-correlation analysis (DCCA), and introduces a joint stochastic process that models these cross-Correlations.
