Title

The Microstructure of Cointegrated Assets

Abstract

I will present a generalization of the micro price to multiple assets. This yields a notion of fair prices, as a function of the observable state of multiple order books. I will show how to compute the microprices of two highly cointegrated assets, using Level-1 data collected on Interactive Brokers. I will then test the model by designing an execution algorithm based on this two-dimensional microprice and show that it can save half of the bid-ask spread cost.
