Opportunities through TCA
Traders Magazine, March 2008
Trade-cost analysis (TCA) will become more important to the buyside. TCA will also become a more valuable tool to lessen the costs of trading. Those were the opinions of 99 buyside trading professionals in a Traders Magazine survey on trade-cost analysis conducted 13 months ago. In fact, 78 percent of those polled said that TCA will not only get better as a predictive tool, but nearly 60 percent said it will become a larger part of their compensation formula. That survey foreshadowed some of the strategies chronicled in last's month's cover story, "Old Dogs, New Tricks." The feature outlined how two large buyside shops-AllianceBernstein and Morgan Stanley Investment Management (MSIM)-are supporters of using quantitative tools in their quest to trade stocks more cheaply and efficiently.
