We introduce an agent-based model featuring near-zero-intelligence traders operating in a double auction market with a wide range of trading rules governing the determination of prices, which orders are executed as well is a range of parameters regarding market intervention by market makers and the presence of informed traders. We find that our model produces properties that are commonly found in financial markets and which are robust to the trading rules employed, only in some instances the observed properties deviate significantly. We call thus conclude that the properties of returns arising in double auction markets are not very sensitive to the trading rules employed.
