Dr. Teall's coverage of the content in this text is very thorough, and it fills a niche in academic and professional literature on trading and market microstructure."--Travis Jones, Florida Gulf Coast University " The presentation is well supported not only by the extensive use of professional literature but also by examples in each chapter. The end-of-chapter questions enhance learning by enabling students to apply concepts in meaningful ways. They make the material more 'real world' for advanced undergraduates or graduate students." --Kevin Klein , Illinois College
