Sample text

In each trading session, after traders submit their orders, the exchange price p∗ is obtained at the intersection of demand and supply. If there are multiple solutions, we choose p∗ as the midpoint of the interval between the lowest and the highest possible values. ) Shares and corresponding payments are exchanged between traders who submitted bids not lower than p∗ and asks not higher than p∗ . Traders who placed orders exactly at price p∗ may be accordingly rationed. This protocol is also known as the k-double auction, with k = 1/2.

The ranking with respect to time to convergence is D > H >> C > B, where > stands for “lower time” and >> for “much lower time”. Protocols involving a dealer converge much faster. Intelligent trading is overall beneficial but has an ambiguous effect. A better choice for the side of the transaction to attempt substantially reduces the time to convergence: this alone might wipe out differences among all protocols except for the batch auction. On the other hand, more aggressive behavior on the choice of the prices slightly increases this time.

1 The Environment We consider an economy with n traders. There is cash and one good, which is an asset with a (random) realization value Y at a given time T in the far future. Each trader i has an initial endowment of cash ci ≥ 0 and shares si ≥ 0. We rule out any informational effect and assume that all traders believe that Y is normally distributed with mean μ ≥ 0 and precision τ = 1/σ 2 > 0 and that no new information is ever released. Therefore, traders’ beliefs about Y are homogeneous and never change until uncertainty resolves.
