In the paper, I simulate the games with a joint presence of 95% VaR-rule and return-rule groups of agents in the game. Simulations highlighted the level of omniscience, next being the rule, which agents follow at the decision-making, and the third the presence of liquidity agents in the game. Omniscient agents make different decisions than non-omniscient agents with non-omniscient return-rule agents performed a little better than the omniscient return-rule agents did, and omniscient VaR-rule agents performed slightly better than non-omniscient VaR-rule agents did. VaR-rule agents clearly outperform return-rule agents, with omniscient return-rule agents performing the worst. The role of liquidity agents has proved to be very significant with none of the two observed performed worst in the neither case.
