Rosario Nunzio Mantegna - Federico Musciotto - Luca Marotta - Jyrki Piilo: Price discovery and market liquidity at NASDAQ Nordic OMX exchanges

We investigate the process of price discovery of several financial assets traded at the Nasdaq Nordic OMX exchanges. Specifically, we empirically investigate the dynamics of the order book of financial assets belonging to the categories of stocks, warrants, equity warrants, and index fund units. By investigating the mean cancelation time of the limit orders submitted to the market we infer about the presence of high frequency trading for a specific financial asset traded in the market. We verify that the presence of high frequency order submission is not always associated with high liquidity. We perform a cross sectional analysis of the order submission and cancellation procedure to detect characteristics of the multivariate nature of high frequency order submission. A discussion of the relationship between high frequency order submission activity and asset liquidity is provided for different categories of financial assets.
