Slot machines are not the phenomenon I'm trying to model. And the motivation here is not to make money necessarily but to better understand the interactions agents' strategies in a dynamic competitive/cooperative global environment.

If anyone has any head starts/packages/products which utilize Mathematica for Oleg's problem of trading system development or for more simply/efficiently running the basic studies such as risk analysis, forecasting, option pricing, etc., please also let me know! Of course, I have already taken a look at WRI's Finance Essentials, Time Series, etc. and Derivatives expert (a third party software) is also a bit pricey and I'm not even sure that it would be a definitive solution to all of the above specs. Once again, I thank all of you who take part in MathGroup.

I'm trying to model backtesting for arbitrary stock trading system in Mathematica. I choose Mathematica hoping that issues like complex stochastic strategies etc can be easily implemented. The advantage I was loking for was speed. However I'm experiencing problems with trivial issues like keeping track of trading position, stop loss limits etc. Have somebody ever done smth like this? Any help and advice would be appreciated. Thx and have bull markets, Oleg.
