Stavrogiannis, Lampros C. and Mitkas, Pericles A. (2009) CAT 2008 Post-Tournament Evaluation: The Mertacor’s Perspective At IJCAI-09 Workshop on Trading Agent Design and Analysis, United States.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


TAC Market Design (or CAT) tournament is an effort to study the competition among modern stock exchanges trying to attract potential traders while maximizing their profit. This paper shortly presents Mertacor, our entrant for 2008, and makes an attempt to evaluate its performance. We compare Mertacor with the other available entries for the setting of CAT 2008 as well as beyond the tournament. What’s more, we introduce a simple yet effective way of computing the global competitive equilibrium that Mertacor utilizes and discuss about its importance for the game.
