It is worth noting that the theory predicted a substantial change only in the return rate while all other changes are more moderate. Experimental results confirmed this substantial change in the return rate. We chose not to report standard deviation statistics. Since the game is dynamic in nature, data across periods were not independent. Thus, calculating standard deviations, or any other variance estimates, across periods would not be useful. Furthermore, variations in subject behavior were mostly driven by their different willingness-to-pay parameter θ.

After noting the pattern, σ 2 was varied in an attempt to generate time series comparable to the human traders. But why should prices converge at all? The key is to recognize the combined effect of budget constraints, double auction rules, and anchoring bids and asks to the previous transaction price. If the previous price is low compared to competitive equilibrium, then the budget constraints imply a larger pool of buyers submitting bids than sellers submitting asks. The double auction rules require bids to be ascending and asks to be descending.

There are no “states of the world” in the sense of classical finance and, correspondingly, no laboratory bets on securities whose values are based on coin tosses or dice rolls. Instead, there is a pair of markets, a private market and a public market. Buyers and sellers receive private, seemingly random opportunities to buy or sell a good from the “experimenter” in their private market and are able to trade with each other in the public market.
