Financial Transaction Taxes anf the Informational Efficiency of Financial Markets: A Structural Estimation

Antonio Guarino, Andreas Uthemann and Marco Cipriani

No 1165, 2015 Meeting Papers from Society for Economic Dynamics

Abstract: We develop a novel methodology to quantify the impact of a financial transaction tax on informational efficiency and market liquidity. We present a model of sequential trading with price elastic liquidity traders and traders with private information of heterogeneous quality. We estimate the model for a stock and then use these estimates to simulate the effect a transaction tax. For the specific stock used in the analysis we find that a financial transaction tax has a negative effect on informational efficiency. A 0.2 percent tax, as has for example been implemented in France, would lead to a 10 percent drop in volume in our asset market and to a much slower convergence of the price to the asset fundamental value.
