On April 2, CME students Mike Ackland, Kenneth Bache, Lee Fridman, Justin Sythes and Alexandra Skorupski will host the CME Trading Simulation. The competition will provide students with the opportunity to compete in a daylong simulation, while gaining valuable experience, and networking with industry professionals.
The goal of the event is to give students the opportunity to experience a typical trading day. The competition will enable students to challenge other traders while using short, long and options trading strategies for 10-stocks. Quotes, news, and options prices will be updated in real time, as trades are transacted throughout the day.
For those students without finance and trading experience, there will be a training session provided before market opens to ensure that all traders are prepared for the competition. The competition is a wonderful opportunity for students to network and benefit from experiential learning.
