The commissions and the probable net loss(buy price will generally be higher than sell price, so demos are also kept in check by this) they will sell at will eat their resources while they will increase the market volume, more tech will reach the market and more tech will be sold at the market, which is good.
Further, I believe that the circumstances that make the bug in which the bots start buying only one tech is tied to the tech levels, which means it should no longer occur if this change is implemented, except perhaps briefly for the democracy bots.
Secondly, make techer bots buy tech for their excess cash above 500m, weighted buying of mostly the cheapest techs. This will increase the demand and supply for the low volume techs which is important both in peacetime and at all times in express where current lack of demand often make getting war techs almost impossible unless you are a techer.
This will solve the issue with techer bots carrying 4-6b cash at times while also improving the tech market.
