Default Agent Set for Artificial Futures Market Simulation

  • 76 Accesses

Part of the Evolutionary Economics and Social Complexity Science book series (EESCS,volume 28)


The origin problem is essential to agent-based simulation. When we developed the artificial financial market simulator named “U-Mart,” we needed to develop not only the system itself but also the default environment in which users begin to use the system. Accordingly, we developed the “Standard Agent Set” as a default set of machine agents for the U-Mart System. We used ten well-known but simple technical strategies and estimated the best mixture ratio of them to realize an adequate futures market by simulation.
