Continuous time trading of a small investor in a limit order market
AbstractWe provide a mathematical framework to model continuous time trading of a small investor in limit order markets. We show how elementary strategies can be extended in a suitable way to general continuous time strategies containing orders with infinitely many different limit prices. The general limit buy order strategies are predictable processes with values in the set of nonincreasing demand functions. It turns out that our strategy set of limit and market orders is closed, but limit orders can turn into market orders when passing to the limit, and any element can be approximated by a sequence of elementary strategies.
