Recent empirical research has documented long-memories of trading volume, volatility, and order-signs in stock markets. We conjecture that traders' order-splitting is related to these empirical features. This study conducts simulations on an order-driven economy where agents split their orders into small pieces and execute piece by piece to reduce price impact. We demonstrate that we can replicate the long-memories in our order-splitting economy and conclude that order-splitting can be a possible cause for these empirical properties.
