Section Description

Prerequisites: IE 522 and IE 523. The purpose of this course is to investigate the exact nature of order matching and routing at the compute-packet level in most exchanges. Not knowing the nature the interfaces has led to many "good fit" predictive models. However, they are often, predicting the past! Analyses need to adjust for speed and time-stamps. The course will address these issues. However, it should be stressed that the course does not purport nor intend to examine nor propose "trading strategies."
