Theory-Experimental Seminar

webinar – 14:30


We use high-performance Continuous Double Auction trading software and algorithms to study the effects of algorithmic trading on pricing, market stability, and allocative efficiency in a laboratory environment that involves multiple parallel markets as in the Capital Asset Pricing Model. Simulations with zero-intelligence agents show that efficient outcomes are robust to different spread parameters, and that liquidity-taking algorithms tend to outperform market-making algorithms. Data from pilot sessions with human participants who have the option to deploy agents from a restrictive set of such robots support these results.
