PAM is intended to have a globally
distributed population of traders. Individuals interested in the Middle
East and in the involvement of the United States with the countries of
the Middle East are welcome to register as PAM traders. Individuals who
are interested in the use of market processes to manage risk are also
welcome to participate in PAM. Whatever a prospective trader’s interest
in PAM, involvement in this group prediction process should prove
engaging and may prove profitable.
Trader registration will open on August
1, 2003 and will be accessed exclusively through this web site. There
will be three steps to the trader registration process:
- Acceptance of various terms
governing access to and use of PAM, the principal of which is
recognition that PAM is a prototype and that the registrant is agreeing
to participate in the test of this prototype.
- Selection of a username and password
by the registrant.
- Deposit of funds into the
registrant’s PAM trading account.
On-line training will begin for
registered traders on September 1, 2003. Live trading will begin on
October 1, 2003.
As a means of ensuring the smooth and
efficient start of live operations, registration will be limited
initially to 1,000 traders. As system operations are tuned to the
trading load, this limit will be increased. By January 1, 2004, the
limit will be raised to at least 10,000 traders.
During this first phase, we appreciate
input from prospective PAM traders. These comments will assist in
development of the interface as well as general information about PAM.
More information and details will be added to the site in the next few
weeks, however, we welcome hearing your thoughts and interest through
