Two forecasters will make their debut trades in Replication Markets on Friday, April 17: Noise Bot and Prior Bot.
These automated traders will wander around the market and make trades based on their algorithms. If you see one of them making trades on a claim in which you have a stake, it could be to your advantage!
Noise Bot will arrive at a claim and make a random choice to buy Yes or No. If you think it made the wrong choice, it could be profitable to reverse its action.
Prior Bot has opinions. It will look for current values that are “far” from the prior trade and try to correct them. If you think Prior Bot made the wrong choice, reverse its action to earn some points.
The RM Team has created these bots to spur action in the markets. When you see one, make a trade and/or leave a comment!
