14th Annual Equity Markets Microstructure Seminar "Maximizing the Value of an Educational Trading Room"
Educators seek to provide rich, immersive opportunities for students to apply classroom materials to real world situations, and this is where trading rooms can have a key role to play. Trading rooms typically enable students to obtain and use real time, fundamental company and market information that is relevant for making corporate decisions, primarily with respect to trading and investing. But passively accessing information in a trading room is not enough. Students must be able to actively link this information and make decisions based on the concepts presented to them in classrooms and textbooks. Only when they can experience what is involved in acting on market information, will their trading room learning truly come alive. How can this be accomplished? The purpose of the seminar is to answer this question with examples, discussions, and sample materials for use. A market simulation, TraderEx, will be used extensively in the trading seminar.
