Extended Gini Index, Bid and Ask prices, Pessimism and Optimism indices
Risky asset bid and ask prices “tailored” to the risk-aversion and the gain-propension of the traders are set up. They are calculated through the principle of the Extended Gini premium, a standard method used in non-life insurance. Explicit formulae for the most common stochastic distributions of risky returns, are calculated. Sufficient and necessary conditions for successful trading are also discussed.
