Liquidity and execution: The resiliency effect on institutional trading costs

14th May 3:00 PM 4:30 PM BST

Resiliency is an important dimension of market liquidity. In this paper we aim to bridge the gap between resiliency and institutional trading costs. By analysing a proprietary parent order dataset which is synchronised with depth and execution data, we find that institutional trading costs increase with non-resiliency, even after controlling for key prominent contributing factors of impact costs such as order size, participation rate and quoted spread. The resiliency effect is robust to trade direction, subperiods, and various order aggregation methods. In addition, we examine how the trading schedule of parent orders affects impact costs under different resiliency profiles. Overall, we establish that resiliency is a considerable determinant contributing to institutional trading costs.
