Dynamic Pari-Mutuel Mechanism
Random Walk Path
Abstract:Wagering is common in various arenas that include but not limited to horse racing, casinos, financial markets and stock trading. Several market mechanisms are used in these markets to predict the outcome based on the available information and make an educated decision in an investment involving huge risks. One such market mechanism is the Dynamic Pari-Mutuel market mechanism developed by Pennock. In this study I describe a python based implementation of the mathematical models used in Dynamic Pari-Mutuel mechanism. The simulation that simulates the market transactions is then validated by verifying if the price generated for each purchase transaction follows a random walk path. This work would be a gate-way leading to opportunities to study various complicated market scenarios by extending the existing capabilities of the simulation.
