The Econometrics of Ultra-High Frequency Data

Author

Listed:
  • Robert F. Engle

Abstract

Ultra-high frequency data are complete transactions data which inherently arrive at random times. Marked point processes provide a theoretical framework for analysis of such data sets. The ACD model developed by Engle and Russell (1995) is then applied to IBM transactions data to develop semi-parametric hazard estimates and measures of instantaneous conditional variances. The variances are negatively influenced by surprisingly long durations as suggested by some of the market micro-structure literature
