Abstract:     
This study examines the impact that intense episodic spikes in quoting activity (frequently referred to as “quote stuffing”) has on market conditions. We find that quote stuffing is pervasive with several hundred events occurring each trading day and that over 74% of U.S. listed equity securities experience at least one episode during 2010. We find that during periods of intense quoting activity stocks experience decreased liquidity, higher trading costs, and increased short term volatility.
