We have developed to real world application that models a financial futures market. The agent-based simulation includes Speculator agents each of which uses a Genetic Algorithm (GA) to improve it's profitability in the market. This is a realistic simulation whose rates-of-return distribution is similar to those Of real futures markets such as corn.
