    MIAX Options Exchange will be modifying the Retransmission Services Timeout Windows to minimize user contention for all MIAX Retransmission Services.  This change should be seamless to users.   MIAX will decrease the timeout window between the initial TCP connection and the SesM login to 2 seconds. Currently, users have 30 seconds once they have established a TCP connection to send a SesM login. Once this change is implemented, if a SesM login is not received before the 2 seconds expires, MIAX will disconnect the connection.  Please note, this is a shared service and does not support multiple users accessing the service simultaneously. The MIAX currently has Retransmission Services for the following:read more...

    William F. Lincoln and Andrew H. McCallum | Although a great deal of ink has been spilled over the consequences of globalization, we do not yet fully understand the causes of increased worldwide trade. Using confidential microdata from the U.S. Census, we document widespread entry into countries abroad by U.S. firms from 1987 to 2006. We show that this extensive margin growth is unlikely to have been due to significant declines in entry costs. We instead find evidence of large roles for the development of the internet, trade agreements, and foreign income growth in driving these trends.

    Friederike Niepmann and Tim Schmidt-Eisenlohr | How relevant are financial instruments to manage risk in international trade for exporting? Employing a unique dataset of U.S. banks' trade finance claims by country, this paper estimates the effect of shocks to the supply of letters of credit on U.S. exports. We show that a one-standard deviation negative shock to a country's supply of letters of credit reduces U.S. exports to that country by 1.5 percentage points. This effect is stronger for smaller and poorer destinations. It more than doubles during crisis times, suggesting a non-negligible role for finance in explaining the Great Trade Collapse.

    Many independent studies on stocks and futures contracts have established that market impact is proportional to the square-root of the executed volume. Is market impact quantitatively similar for option markets as well? In order to answer this question, we have analyzed the impact of a large proprietary data set of option trades. We find that the square-root law indeed holds in that case. This finding supports the argument for a universal underlying mechanism. read more...

    We confirm and substantially extend the recent empirical result of Andersen et al. (2015), where it is shown that the amount of risk $W$ exchanged in the E-mini S&P futures market (i.e. price times volume times volatility) scales like the 3/2 power of the number of trades $N$. We show that this 3/2-law holds very precisely across 12 futures contracts and 300 single US stocks, and across a wide range of times scales. However, we find that the "trading invariant" $I=W/N^{3/2}$ proposed by Kyle and Obfizhaeva (2010) is in fact quite different for different contracts, in particular between futures and single stocks. Our analysis suggests $I/S$ as a more natural candidate, where $S$ is the bid-ask spread. We also establish two more complex scaling laws for the volatility $\sigma$ and the traded volume $V$ as a function of $N$, that reveal the existence of a characteristic number of trades $N_0$ above which the expected behaviour $\sigma \sim \sqrt{N}$ and $V \sim N$ hold, but below which strong deviations appear, induced by the size of the tick. read more...

    We propose a finite difference scheme to simulate solutions to a certain type of hyperbolic stochastic partial differential equation (HSPDE). These solutions can in turn estimate so called volatility modulated Volterra (VMV) processes and L\'{e}vy semistationary (LSS) processes, which is a class of processes that have been employed to model turbulence, tumor growth and electricity forward and spot prices. We will see that our finite difference scheme converges to the solution of the HSPDE as we take finer and finer partitions for our finite difference scheme in both time and space. Finally, we demonstrate our method with an example from the energy finance literature. read more...

    Our seduction into beliefs in competition, scarcity, and acquisition are producing too many casualties. We need to depart a kingdom that creates isolation, polarized debate, an exhausted planet, and violence that comes with the will to empire. The abbreviation of this empire is called a consumer culture.read more...
