An important task of high-frequency trading is to successfully capture the dynamics in the Data. Empirical Data on Indian Exchanges show that 95% of all NEW orders are placed within 5 ticks of best-bid and best-ask. The Quantinsti® Replacement Matrix shows that most of the orders that are being replaced are among the top 3 levels and these replacements allow us to visualize and generalize about market behaviour. This matrix gives a visual representation of the cost metrics and replacement behaviour.
Execution Algorithms provide a price which is between Limit Order Execution and Market Order Execution. Market Orders guarantee execution within a certain time but the price that it may get the trader remains uncertain. Limit Order guarantees the price but it may remain un-executed if price moves away. Most Execution Algorithms balance between these two order types.
The speaker, Mr. Gaurav Raizada, discusses Quantinsti® Replacement Matrix in the webinar along with basics on order book management theory for high frequency traders.
