In ultra-high-frequency trading in modern financial markets conducted at sub-second frequencies, one often observes lead-lag relationships between assets, which are beyond the scope of the conventional theory of financial engineering. The aim of this research is to understand how and why these phenomena occur.
Multi-scale decomposition of the cross-covariance between the S&P 500 index and its futures
Histogram of lead-lag times between the NASDAQ and BATS exchanges
