High frequency correlation modelling
Many statistical arbitrage strategies, such as pair trading or basket trading, are based on several assets. Optimal execution routines should also take into account correlation between stocks when proceeding clients orders. However, not so much effort has been devoted to correlation modelling and only few empirical results are known about high frequency correlation. We develop a theoretical framework based on correlated point processes in order to capture the Epps effect in section 1. We show in section 2 that this model converges to correlated Brownian motions when moving to large time scales. A way of introducing non-Gaussian correlations is also discussed in section 2. We conclude by addressing the limits of this model and further research on high frequency correlation.
