In Grid economies the allocation of tasks to available resources is a key feature of resource management. This is particularly the case in large scale infrastructures spanning many administrative domains such as grids or public resource computing networks. While most of the widely solutions on resource controlling and a task scheduling in Grid computing has been driven by system-centric service provisioning, we develop a commodity market model of CPU bounded resources to become open system for user-centric approach. The key element is to encourage grid participants to deliver the maximum utility in the market. In this paper we present a commodity market resource management in dynamic computational grids, that are modeled using the Grid Economics Simulator (GES). The key design goals of the simulator are enabling it wide variety of economic and non-economic forms of resource management in a dynamic Grid fashion and exhibiting good scalability properties.
