The rat experiment is flawed. The outcome was not random, it was preset to be 60%. However, the students did not know of the rig and the rats just learned where food was most of the time. It was a static markets. Now put the rats in a dynamic market where the long term outcome will be 50/50 but with some short term trending and ranging, and there may well be an algorithm to take advantage of such action that will beat 50%.
