Interested in Trading simulation at Subotnick Center?

If you guys/girls want to organize a simulated trading session, just take a look at our calendar for the Subotnick Center and let Professor Holowczak a time/date and either Richard or I can run the session.

Also, don't forget that the 'developmental classroom' and the 'seminar room' are different from the 'trading floor,' which is where the event will take place. Just to make things interesting, I think there should be a prize for the top trader :)

This is great! Thanks Christian! If you can conduct the session then we don't have to rely on Prof. H's availability. I will look at the schedule tonight and work with everybody to pick a time! This is going to be a lot of fun given my past experience!

I like very much the idea of a prize as well. What kind of prize do you have in mind? Cash? Gift-certificate?
 
Christian,

Sorry if this sounds like a silly question but what exactly do you mean by simulated trading session?

Trading against one another, if so who is the broker?

Otherwise do you mean program vs. program, if so what is the common market?
 
Okay...looking at Subotnick calendar, things looks pretty packed during the weekdays, except Friday. It seems like Friday evening or Saturday afternoon is our best options. Given the interests so far I'd vote for either next Friday Oct 5 at 6pm or Saturday Oct 6 at 4pm. I'm going to send an email to Prof. H now and see if either of these 2 days are fine with him.

Everyone that participates will be competing against each other. For example, in the equities simulation there will be a certain time frame, and each person will be given some different, but incomplete information regarding the final value of the security.

It is up to everyone to use what the know, and observe the behavior in the price to determine the probable end price to be. Using that, buy and sell accordingly to make the most profit.

p.s. sorry about the PM. If you need to contact me please e-mail me at my Baruch

Professor Holowczak:

Can we postpone the tutorials to early November? Because we have three mid-terms due on the last week of October. What about others' opinions?

The Career Fair is on October 26th, at NYU. People would be very tired after that.

Rich, any suggestions for November?

Thanks again for doing this! You are totally wonderful!
