This cutting-edge volume brings together a range of leading academics and market practitioners to help you define, understand and measure liquidity risk and "liquidity black holes". Fully explains "liquidity black holes" as episodes where, across markets where liquidity is normally healthy, buyers disappear, and price declines do not help to bring them back - such as in the recent "Long Term Capital Management crisis". Presents evidence that smaller liquidity holes are appearing more routinely in a range of markets. Specifically written in order to help practitioners and policy makers identify and thus avoid markets prone to damaging liquidity black holes. Additionally covers trends and issues in market liquidity, liquidity risk and disclosing positions, liquidity public policy, liquidity in relation to credit and currency markets, and many other issues.
