Sample text

Moreover, technologies (see Book 3) that reduce latency in reaching markets are also important. Investors and traders who believe they have information not widely known and many quantitative traders probably generate more timesensitive orders than other trader types. As with price-sensitive orders, this is ­speculation on our part, and all traders are probably in a hurry for some of the orders they generate. Relative-Price Orders For orders where two are more instruments are to be executed as part of a broader strategy, both time and price matter but not in the same sense as either price-sensitive or time-sensitive orders.

In all probability, almost every type of trading motivation and/or trader type generates some price-sensitive orders. We suspect “value investors” and “passive investors” generate a higher ­ ercentage of price-sensitive orders than other types of traders and investors, but p that statement is only speculation. The execution goal for price-sensitive orders is to find an execution venue where explicit trading costs are low and where the chance of information about the order (market impact) leaking to other traders is also low.

Limit orders: Orders sent to the market with instructions related to the price at which they may be executed are known as limit orders. One special class of limit order is known as a marketable limit order, which is a limit order sent to the market priced at the existing price at the time the order is sent. If the price is still valid when the ­order reaches the market, it should execute. (In an electronic market, the e ­ xecution is certain. ) If the price has changed, the order becomes a standing limit order at the limit price.
