Purpose

Educators value providing rich 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.

Computer Simulation
A market simulation, TraderEx, will be used extensively in the trading seminar.  It is designed for broader use in business courses.  TraderEx is an interactive simulation model originally developed by Schwartz and Weber, that enables participants to enter orders into a computer-driven market that generates order flow, and responds directly to participants’ orders.  Participants see their results in real-time, and can analyze their decisions after a simulation run.  Continuous order driven markets are simulated, along with call auctions, a block trading facility and hybrid combinations.   Participants also gain experience by competing with each other in a networked environment and assessing performance afterward.
