We consider the problem of optimally executing a large portfolio transaction within a specified period of time. For an institutional investor, the size of his buy or sell order is often larger than the market can immediately supply or absorb, and his trading will move the price (market impact). His order must be worked across some period of time, exposing him to price volatility. The investor needs to find a trade-off between the market impact costs of rapid execution and the market risk of slow execution. This problem was considered by Almgren and Chriss (2000). In this talk we will show how their results can be improved by allowing price adaptive trading strategies.
