An Extended Model of Serial Covariance Bid-Ask Spreads
This paper presents a generalized serial covariance spread pricing model that unifies and improves existing spread models. We analyze three cost components of spread: order processing, adverse information, and inventory holding costs. We modify Stoll's (1989) model by incorporating a two-period conditional probability trading model to derive a new spread estimator. We propose a methodology to estimate the input parameters. We then show this extended model potentially avoids some of the limitations associated with earlier models.
