As a centralized, computerized, limit order market, the Paris Bourse is particularly appropriate for studying the interaction between the order book and order flow. Descriptive methods capture the richness of the data and distinctive aspects of the market structure. Order flow is concentrated near the quote, while the depth of the book is somewhat larger at nearby valuations. We analyze the supply and demand of liquidity. For example, thin books elicit orders and thick books result in trades. To gain price and time priority, investors quickly place orders within the quotes when the depth at the quotes or the spread is large. Consistent with information effects, downward (upward) shifts in both bid and ask quotes occur after large sales (purchases)

Is the Correlation in International Equity Returns Constant: 1960-1990 ?

We study the correlation of monthly excess returns for seven major countries over the period 1960-90. We find that the international covariance and correlation matrices are unstable over time. A multivariate GARCH(1,1) model with constant conditional correlation helps to capture some of the evolution in the conditional covariance structure. However tests of specific deviations lead to a rejection of the hypothesis of a constant conditional correlation. An explicit modelling of the conditional correlation indicates an increase of the international correlation between markets over the past thirty years. We also find that the correlation rises in periods of high volatility. There is some preliminary evidence that economic variables such as the dividend yield and interest rates contain information about future volatility and correlation that is not contained in past returns alone

La structure financière des entreprises : une investigation empirique sur données françaises

Cet article propose un test empirique, dans le cas de la France, de différentes théories de la structure financière des entreprises. Une originalité de notre spécificaton est que nous considérons deux variables endogènes : la dette bancaire et le crédit fournisseur, dans un modèle d'équations simultanées. Le recours au crédit fournisseur est plus important pour les entreprises de petite taille, le recours à la dette bancaire est plus important pour les entreprises moyennes. En accord avec les théories mettant l'accent sur les asymétries d'information entre prêteurs et emprunteurs, l'endettement est croissant avec les actifs immobilisés
