Abstract:     
Single period risks acceptable to the market at zero cost are modeled by a convex set of random variables leading to bid and ask prices that are trade size dependent. The theory of nonlinear expectations is employed to construct dynamically consistent sequences of bid and ask unit size prices that are size and trade date contingent. We then study the optimal design of spot and forward trading to minimize execution costs. Finally we illustrate the construction of a two period execution cost frontier trading a decrease in execution costs for additional exposure to price risk.
