Equilibrium In A Competitive Market With Heterogeneously Informed Traders

Ian Gale

No 292677, SSRI Workshop Series from University of Wisconsin-Madison, Social Systems Research Institute

Abstract: This paper models the adverse selection problem faced by a market maker trading with informed hedgers. When the market maker is able to quote arbitrary offer schedules there are instances of non-existence of a competitive equilibrium. When an equilibrium does exist, better-informed hedgers may impose a dissipative externality on the less well-informed. However, if the types of hedgers are sufficiently different, equilibrium will be the same as in the full information case.
