We evaluate an agent-based model featuring near-zero-intelligence traders operating in a call market with a wide range of trading rules governing the determination of prices, which orders are executed as well as a range of parameters regarding market intervention by market makers and the presence of informed traders. We optimize these trading rules using a multi-objective population-based incremental learning (PIBL) algorithm seeking to maximize the trading price and minimize the bid-ask spread. Our results suggest that markets should choose a relatively large tick size unless concerns about either the bid-ask spread or the trading price are dominating. We also find that in contrast to trading rules in actual markets, reverse time priority is an optimal priority rule.
