This doctoral thesis focuses on two topics on trading in financial markets: competition between stock exchanges and optimal trading strategies. Chapter one analyzes the effect on the liquidity of a stock when it is traded on multiple trading venues, and distinguishes between competition from transparent and opaque venues. Chapter two demonstrates a strong interaction between the supply and demand of trading activity across trading venues. Chapter three focuses on the optimal strategy to trade a large amount of shares before a deadline. It studies the information asymmetry between informed and uninformed traders, and finds that splitting the large quantity into smaller parts may resolve this friction.
