Let and denote the value functions of the high and low tlosten informed traders respectively. Let be the closest price level to such that and let be the closest price level to such that. Let and denote the bid and ask prices at time.
Thus, for all it 19985 be that and. At each timean equilibrium consists of a pair of bid and ask prices. All traders have a fixed order size of. Application to Pricing Using Bid-Ask. I compute the value functions and as well as the gloaten trading strategies on a grid over the unit interval with nodes. Let be the left limit of the price at time. Substituting in the formulas for and from above yields an expression for the price change that is purely in terms of the trading intensities and the price.
Compute using Equation 9. I seed initial guesses at the values of and. Relationships, Human Behaviour and Financial Transactions. Bid red and ask blue prices for the risky asset. Then, I iterate on these value function guesses until the adjustment error which I define in Step 5 below is sufficiently small. For instance, if he strictly preferred to place the order, he would have done so earlier via the continuity of the price process.
I then plug in Equation 10 to compute and. There is a single risky asset which pays out at a random date. This combination of conditions pins down the equilibrium. Below I outline the estimation procedure in complete detail.
Along the way, the algorithm checks that neither informed trader type has an incentive to bluff. There are forces at work here. So, for example, denotes the trading intensity at some time in the milgrrom direction of an informed trader who knows that the value of the asset is. I begin in Section by laying out the continuous time asset pricing framework.

At each forset and ensure that Equation 14 is satisfied. This cost has to be offset by the value delaying. Let denote the vector of prices. In all time periods in which the informed trader does not trade, smooth pasting implies that 19985 must be indifferent between trading and delaying an instant.
In fact, in markets with a higher information value, the effect of attention constraints on the liquidity provision ability of market makers is greater.
However, via the conditional expectation price setting rule, must be a martingale meaning that. Optimal Trading Strategies I now characterize the equilibrium trading intensities of the informed traders.
I use the teletype style to denote the number of iterations in the optimization algorithm. The equilibrium trading intensities can be derived from these values analytically. I now characterize the equilibrium trading intensities of the informed traders. If the low type informed traders want to buy at price 19885, decrease their value function at price by.
Furthermore, the aggregate level of market liquidity remains unaltered across both highly active and inactive markets, suggesting a reactive strategy by informed traders who step in to compete with market makers during high information intensity periods when their attention allocation efforts are compromised.
Scientific Research An Academic Publisher. Related Party Transactions and Financial Performance: Perfect competition dictates that the market maker sets the price of the risky asset. The informed trader milgeom a trading strategy in order to maximize his end of game wealth at random date with discount rate.
Between trade price drift. Thus, in the equations below, I drop the time dependence wherever it causes no confusion. This implies that informed traders may not only exploit their informational advantage against uninformed traders but they may also use it to reap a higher share of liquidity-based profits. Glosetn and denote the vector of value function levels over each point in the price grid after iteration. No arbitrage implies that for all with and since: In order to guarantee a solution to the optimization problem posed above, I restrict the domain of potential trading strategies to those that generate finite end of game wealth.
I interpolate the value function levels at and linearly.

milgfom Combining these equations leaves a formulation for which contains only prices. First, observe that since is distributed exponentially, the only relevant state variable is at time. Then, in Section I solve for the optimal trading strategy of the informed agent as a system of first order conditions and boundary constraints.
Asset Pricing Framework There is a single risky asset which pays out at a random date. Similar reasoning yields a symmetric condition for low type informed traders. There 198 an informed trader and a stream of uninformed traders who arrive with Poisson intensity.
