The paper shows how to visualize the price discovery process as a movie. The plot consists of eight FX delaers and an interdealer market. They all start at the red circle, which can be thought of as the equilibrium just before a price shock hits the system. The movie shows how the dealers connect informationally to eventually arrive at the post-shock equilibrium, the red star in the centre. Click the image to start the trailer!
