Scope of the Workshop

In the aftermath of the 2008/2009 global financial crisis, several international capital markets experienced severe losses. Further, since March 2020 and within the on-going coronavirus crisis (COVID-19), the financial markets have been again impacted significantly in particular because of the lockdown decisions in different developed and emerging countries, the slowdown of major economies, etc. Indeed, these recent events -induced basically by a COVID-19 shock - have generated an economic shock, increased uncertainty, and impacted investor’s anxiety and therefore financial market dynamics.

 

In order to limit these losses, ensure investors and improve risk control, governments and central banks have proposed different solidarity programs and aids. The financial market authorities adopted new regulatory measures to strengthen the financial systems, control algorithm and flash trading, improve market organization, and advance risk management. The availability of high frequency market data and the development of recent econometric models are of real interest in assessing the efficiency of these new regulatory measures, to test their appropriateness and to assess for the effects of these shocks on the financial markets. Moreover, this can also help identify the main characteristics of the financial market data, resolve the issues raised by high frequency data, improve the understanding of price formation, and assess the risk dynamics. The aim of the workshop is to discuss innovative econometric modeling approaches that can serve as valuable frameworks to deal with these issues, with a particular interest for nonlinear models and recent econometrics modeling. The workshop aims at bringing together academics and professionals (economists, financiers, and econometricians) to discuss these issues and to present their recent theoretical and empirical findings. It will also serve as a valuable platform for discussing innovative and thought-provoking ideas on nonlinear high frequency data modeling.
