Week: 20-24th June 2011 (Semester 1: EXAM WEEK 2)

This week my goal is to see if I can analyse the data provided to me by Andrew Lepone and gain some useful insight into Algorithmic Trading in the ASX.

On Thursday:

I wrote a script on Matlab to analyse a weeks worth of Data pertaining to the stock with the symbol AAC.

What I was trying to do was discover the number of algorithms that were involved in the trading of stocks every 5 minutes from the beginning to the end of the trading day for the entire week of 30 Oct 2006 and 3 Nov 2006.

I graphed the results and found a peak in algorithmic trading at the beginning and in the middle of the day.

On Friday:

I am trying to analyse all other stocks for the same week in the same way as I analysed AAC, to see if AAC follows the norm or whether it is different.
