Since 1996 a lot of econometric models have been developed to analyse transaction times, price changes and volume movements on financial places like the NYSE, NASDAQ and EURONEXT. These models give a better understanding of the undelying trading mechanisms of financial products. They also lead to important new applications in the microstructure theory of financial markets by allowing a better modeling of volatility, transaction costs and market liquidity. A lot of research work has still to be done given the very recent delopment of these models. This project is particularly focused on volatility and liquidity modeling issues.
