The Price Impact of Stock Trades: Evidence from the Prague Stock Exchange
AbstractUsing high-frequency trade and quote data from the Prague Stock Exchange, this paper investigates the price impact of stock trades using a vector autoregressive model. We find that (a) full impact of a trade on the security price is not felt instantaneously but a with a protracted lag, (b) as a function of trade innovation size, the ultimate impact of the innovation on the quote is non-linear, positive, increasing, and convex, and (c) there is a significant causal pattern (acc. to Grange-Sims) running from lagged quote revisions to trades as well as from trades to quote revisions.
