Experiment in financial markets
We present below recent results from our research in gender and finance.
We use the SimTrade simulation platform freely available on www.simtrade.fr. SimTrade is a tool used to teach and learn finance, and a tool used for research to conduct experiments to better understand the behavior of individuals in terms of financial decisions.
The originality of SimTrade is to propose simulations with a platform to buy and sell stocks. Like traders in a trading room of an investment bank, SimTraders live a full trading day (10 minutes at your watch) with exciting trading opportunities, stock market prices going up and down, positive and negative news announcements about firms and in the economy that have to be interpreted.
