The Total Cost of Transactions on the NYSE
A measure of execution on market impact cost is developed; it is the difference between a transaction price and th e volume weighted average price for that day. Fourteen thousand insti tutional trades are examined. Market impact costs average five basis points. Commission costs average eighteen basis points. Total costs a verage twenty-three basis points. Total costs vary only slightly acro ss brokers and vary greatly across money managers. There is no trade- off between commission costs and market impact costs.
