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
- Deposit of funds into the registrant’s PAM trading
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
