Well, this is a bit of a challenge. The best overall book on financial
econometrics is Campbell, Lo and MacKinlay's book The Econometrics of

econometric analysis of financial models (return predictability, high
frequency and market microstructure, event studies, portfolio theory, factor
models, derivatives models, etc). Since most financial data is times series
(or panel oriented) the emphasis is on time series applications but there
are plenty of cross section topics as well. You might supplement the
material by a general discussion of GMM techniques as well as panel data
techniques. I would suggest using Cochrane's Asset Pricing Book together

background. You might also consider Ruppert's book Statistics and Finance:
An Introduction or Carmona's book Statistical Analysis of Financial Data in
S-PLUS and pick the chapters that are not so much time series oriented. I
personally like these books quite a lot. Finally, another choice might be
Chris Brooks' book Introductory Econometridcs for Finance. However, this
book is fairly time series oriented but does have a solid treatment of
