Information is a key component in determining the price of an asset in financial markets, and the main objective of this paper is to study the spread of information in this context. The network of interactions in financial markets is modeled using a Galton-Watson tree where vertices represent the traders and where two traders are connected by an edge if one of the two traders sells the asset to the other trader. The information starts from a given vertex and spreads through the edges of the graph going independently from seller to buyer with probability $p$ and from buyer to seller with probability $q$. In particular, the set of traders who are aware of the information is a (bidirectional) bond percolation cluster on the Galton-Watson tree. Using some conditioning techniques and a partition of the cluster of open edges into subtrees, we compute explicitly the first and second moments of the cluster size, i.e., the random number of traders who learn about the information. We also prove exponential decay of the diameter of the cluster in the subcritical phase.
