A new paper by FiRe member Stefan Palan and his co-author, Thomas Stöckl, titled "Catch me if you can. Can human observers identify insiders in asset markets?", has recently been published in the Journal of Economic Psychology. The authors find that market trading data carries information which correlates with informed trading activity. Observers partly succeed in recognizing and using this information to identify informed traders.
