A computer program to simulate commodity trading has been developed. The model has been used to evaluate the performance of a few trading rules. It provides a computerized commodity trading environment through which one can execute buy-sell signals generated by social decision criterion. A random price generator has been included to add a realistic dimension. Complete accounting and statistical analysis is also performed within the CTSS. This paper describes the system arid its possible uses in the classroom and research. It is available to others interested in developing it further.
