Abstract

Progress in information technology and globalization of world economy enable traders to choose from more than one market exchanges to trade in. This paper investigates the impacts of charging different types of market fees on human traders' market selection behavior under two markets. The experimental results show that intra-marginal, or high-value human traders selected a market charging lump-sum registration fees more frequently, while extra-marginal traders, or low-value traders, selected a market charging fixed-rate profit fee more often. This is in alignment with previous findings with software trading agents.
