A joint paper with Thomas Stöckl, titled "Catch me if you can. Can human observers identify insiders in asset markets?", has recently been published (open access) in volume 67 of the Journal of Economic Psychology. This is the second paper resulting from a large experiment into the behavior of insiders and uninformed traders in markets variably characterized either no regulation or by regulation forbidding trading by informed insiders. While the first paper focused on the behavior of traders and on the effect on market-level variables, the new paper discusses whether and how market observers succeed in identifying informed traders solely from studying market trading data.
