Description

The Science of Algorithmic Trading and Portfolio Management, with its emphasis on algorithmic trading processes and current trading models, sits apart from others of its kind. Robert Kissell, the first author to discuss algorithmic trading across the various asset classes, provides key insights into ways to develop, test, and build trading algorithms. Readers learn how to evaluate market impact models and assess performance across algorithms, traders, and brokers, and acquire the knowledge to implement electronic trading systems.

This valuable book summarizes market structure, the formation of prices, and how different participants interact with one another, including bluffing, speculating, and gambling. Readers learn the underlying details and mathematics of customized trading algorithms, as well as advanced modeling techniques to improve profitability through algorithmic trading and appropriate risk management techniques. Portfolio management topics, including quant factors and black box models, are discussed, and an accompanying website includes examples, data sets supplementing exercises in the book, and large projects.

Review Text

"Kissell... introduces the mathematical models for constructing, calibrating, and testing market impact models that calculate the change in stock price caused by a large trade or order, and presents an advanced portfolio optimization process that incorporates market impact and transaction costs directly into portfolio optimization."-- ProtoView.com, March 2014 "This book provides excellent coverage of the challenges faced by portfolio managers and traders in implementing investment ideas and the advanced modeling techniques to address these challenges."-- Kumar Venkataraman, Southern Methodist University
