abstract (eng):

We formulate a simple decision model of a market maker maximizing an utility from his consumption. We reduce the dimensionality of the problem to one. We nd that, given our setting, the quotes set by the market maker depend on the inventory of the traded asset but not on the amount of cash held by the market maker.
