SCL SEMINAR SERIES :: Models of Spot Markets and Longer Term Contracts

Primary tabs

This work considers a setting in which products can be bought and sold on a spot market or by entering into contracts in advance of demand realization. Various people have studied the interaction between contracts and spot markets. We consider the effect of different market structures, and of spot market participation rates, on the amounts transacted via contracts and on the spot market, and on the surpluses of the sellers and buyers.
