Revue de presse

Prepublication Praise:
"The authors have shaped the field of high-frequency data in finance; the text provides an excellent summary of their pioneering work."
--PAUL EMBRECHTS, Professor of Mathematics, ETH Zurich
"An Introduction to High-Frequency Finance by the research team from Olsen & Associates is an amazing presentation of their work over the last decade and a half examining high-frequency, primarily currency, data. The volume includes details of data handling, filtering methods, scaling procedures, volatility models, automatic market making and trading rules that for many years were proprietary information. I highly recommend the book for anyone using tick data."
--ROBERT ENGLE, Department of Finance, Stern School, NYU and Department of Economics, University of California, San Diego
"At long last, the study of financial prices is moving beyond convenient oversimplifications. For providing much of the best data and an indispensable bridge between the financial and academic communities, this flowering is deeply indebted to the group led by Dr. Richard Olsen.
This group and its alumni have also analyzed their own data. That work, which I often quote, has now been collected and extended in a book. I shall wear it out by constant use and it is a delight to recommend it to the emerging rational finance community."
--BENOIT B. MANDELBROT, Sterling Professor of Mathematical Sciences, Yale University

Présentation de l'éditeur

Liquid markets generate hundreds or thousands of ticks (the minimum change in price a security can have, either up or down) every business day. Data vendors such as Reuters transmit more than 275,000 prices per day for foreign exchange spot rates alone. Thus, high-frequency data can be a fundamental object of study, as traders make decisions by observing high-frequency or tick-by-tick data. Yet most studies published in financial literature deal with low frequency, regularly spaced data. For a variety of reasons, high-frequency data are becoming a way for understanding market microstructure. This book discusses the best mathematical models and tools for dealing with such vast amounts of data.
This book provides a framework for the analysis, modeling, and inference of high frequency financial time series. With particular emphasis on foreign exchange markets, as well as currency, interest rate, and bond futures markets, this unified view of high frequency time series methods investigates the price formation process and concludes by reviewing techniques for constructing systematic trading models for financial assets.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 More Than An Introduction 28 mai 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur
This one of the few books on high frequency finance is a most welcome to the literature. The book is useful not only for people who are new to the subject but also for researchers in the field since it is a most uniform treatment of many topics. From adaptive data cleaning (chapter 4) to intraday and weekly seasonality (chapter 6) and real time trading models (chapter 11), it covers a broad range of topics specific to high frequency financial time series analysis. Chapters on volatility modeling (Chapter 8), forecasting (chapter 9) and correlation and multivariate risk (chapter 10) are enlightening especially for risk exposure analysis and risk management purposes. Finally, the the extensive bibliography is a precious source for those who would like to explore certain topics in detail. I highly recommend it for practitioners as well as researchers in the field.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 From the experts in the field 6 juin 2002
Par Professor Joseph L. McCauley - Publié sur
Michel Dacorogna and the team at the former Olsen & Associates are well-known experts in the field of foreign exchange rate data analysis, and their book provides us with a vast, useful source of information. Unfortunately for students and other beginners, the book is written like a compilation of papers and review articles, the opposite of pedagogical, and with an awful choice of 'computerese' notation (MA(t,n)=sum(EMA(t',k)... etc) that makes Boudhaud-Potters look easy in comparison. More to the point, even their noncomputerese notation is difficult to follow. I hope for a very different second edition written pedagogically for students of this growing and important field. On the positive side, data analyses are performed using logarithmic returns, not price increments. Workers in the field who consult this text will find it helpful.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Definitely mid-frequency in this day and age 5 juillet 2011
Par em_everywhere - Publié sur

This book doesn't deal with true high-frequency trading, where it is more about execution than anything else. The book IS ten years old when I write this, so high frequency trading has taken on a different meaning, so no false advert here.

That said, it is a great treatment of the practical issues of handling large, heterogeneous financial data sets and their statistics. I haven't seen their methodology and framework anywhere else, although there are some really good treatments of irregularly spaced financial data (Hautsch, Engle).

The authors are prolific in this area, in particular, the use of tick data to build better volatility models and the use of seasonality (business time scale) and stochastic time (see intrinsic time). They also present a good way to use higher frequency homogeneous data to effectively filter historical volatility computations that makes them more robust when the data is interpolated or sparse. The best part is that they bring everything together for use in multivariate cases and for forecasting/trading.

Overall, this is a great book, that doesn't have many peers (if any). I can't recommend it enough.

Minor downsides:
(1) I also agree with the other reviewers on the notation, although it doesn't bother me that much personally.
(2) Would be nice to see some type of flowchart for an implementation of the methods in Ch. 6 and later, like they did in Ch. 4.
(3) No explicit mention of duration and/or point processes, although it is implicit in many of their techniques. This one might be a little unfair because one can't expect the authors to survey the entire body of literature.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting, but not very well written 1 février 2011
Par Corwin J. Joy - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
There are some useful results in this book. It has an especially good section on statistical techniques for data cleanup and making sure you have a clean tick series. Also, there are some interesting pieces on how to handle the discontinuous nature of tick data as opposed to what you see with daily data. Unfortunately, the book is written in a style that is hard to follow so that even standard results seem somewhat obscure the way the authors present them. Also, the notation is a pain, as noted by other reviewers they use a kind of computer notation rather than standard statistical notation making many of the forumulae much more difficult to read than they should be. Overall, a good book but it suffers from a poor writing style and is getting to be somewhat dated.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 FX Only! 24 octobre 2009
Par Breno Neri - Publié sur

The tools described in this book are actually in mid frequency, not exactly high frequency. And they are specific for FX. If you are looking for truly high frequency strategies for equities, this book is not for you.
