14th Annual Academic Seminar
Trading & Market Structure
Baruch College, Wasserman Trading Floor
New York, New York
Economics can we taught with live markets.
The financial trading environment is undergoing profound change with new market structures and greater challenges for
traders in accessing liquidity and implementing investment strategies successfully. This workshop examines the
principles of trading and market structure, and will be a catalyst for introducing course materials into university
finance, IT, and business programs. By the end of the seminar, participants will be able to incorporate a one- or
two-session module on microstructure and securities trading into a course, or have the foundation materials for a
trading and microstructure course that runs a half term or a full term.
