Switzerland: Day 3

Not much news today. We had the morning off, presumably so that some students could work on their presentations. The afternoon included five presentations, generally covering

  • A theoretical examination of the impacts of financial transaction taxes
  • The effect of speed bumps on market liquidity
  • The asymmetric returns volatility effect (theory and empirics)
  • Determinants of market fragmentation
  • The effects of primary issuance on secondary market liquidity

The presentation quality was pretty excellent, overall.
