Effectiveness of Different Trading Strategies for Price-takers

P. 133-142.

We introduce simulation models of stock exchange to explore which traders are successful and how their strategies influence to their wealth and probability of bankruptcy. The results of our experiments show that there is a critical level of agent’s experience (or luck) such that agents with this or higher level almost sure will survive on the market on the long run. This critical level is just slightly higher 1/2 and such small value explains why so many people try to trade on the stock exchange. But if trader uses margin trading, the critical level is much higher and shows the risk of excessive losses.
