A joint grant application by Thomas Stöckl (MCI Management Center Innsbruck, serving as principal investigator) and Stefan Palan (FiRe, University of Graz) has received funding by the Austrian National Bank (OeNB).
Titled Putting a spotlight on insider trading legislation - A cross-examination using laboratory markets, the research project consists of three separate studies of insider trading and the effect of legislation. Specifically, they focus on the effect on the possibility to short sell on informed and uninformed traders' behavior and profits, on traders' choice of a regulated vs. a non-regulated market, and on whether traders themselves would vote for legislation against informed trading or not.
Funded with € 147,000, the project will run for three years and will bring together pre- and post-doc researchers in Graz and Innsbruck.
