Bubbles in hybrid markets: How expectations about algorithmic trading affect human trading

Journal of Economic Behavior & Organization, 2018, vol. 146, issue C, 248-269

Abstract: Bubbles are omnipresent in lab experiments with asset markets. Most of these experiments are conducted in environments with only human traders. Since today's markets are substantially determined by algorithmic trading, we use a laboratory experiment to measure how human trading depends on the expected presence of algorithmic traders. We find that bubbles are clearly smaller when human traders expect algorithmic traders to be present.
