Subject: RE: [emix] What about Price Look-ahead.
Toby et al.:
If EMIX takes-on the look-ahead that I would argue is definitely needed for appliances to make more than simple, snap decisions about their energy use, then it is imperative that we figure-out a way to prevent gaming of the system by the “market makers” that will institute wholesale trading on the EMIX model.
That is to say, if this were compared to the stock-market model of electronic trading, “look-ahead” would be akin to soothsaying market trends and those with the quickest and most-connected systems could profit off the highs and lows to the detriment of the market as a whole.
Thoughts; both on my gaming theory as well as how to prevent problems with look-ahead?

Assume we have a basic Emix done. Does the specification include a look-ahead?
This is a market interaction pattern that properly belongs in EnergyInterop
Appliances and SEP 2.0 should need no more than EMIX. If Appliances and SEP need price look-ahead, than it goes into EMIX
