FINC 322 - EQUITY MARKETS TRADING
In this course, we will learn a wide spectrum of topics that may enhance your trading performance and provide you with a good understanding of how the equity market operates. In the traditional approach financial economics, the price formation process is a "black box" in which there is no explicit role for financial market structure. Aspects such as dealers, transaction costs and the organizational structure of financial markets are largely ignored. Here, we take a real-world approach to the mechanics of financial markets by exploring how market imperfections generate trading costs and make the market protocol in which trading takes place a relevent factor. In the real world, trading stands on its own as an important operation, and as one that is distinct from investing. This course has two parallel dimensions. On the one hand, we provide a theoretical approach to the underlying dynamics of equity markets by exploring topics such as liquidity, intraday volatility, transaction costs, price effeciency and trading profits. On the other hand, we illustrate the topics presented in the course with the use of computer-based trading software (a practical approach). Suported by an intensive use of the newly built Global Financial Markets Trading Laboratory, this course will allow students to simulate a market where they will participate as traders and interact with other students, as well as computed-generated traders. Furthermore, this course will prepare students for the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) trading electronic and open out-cry (held at the New York Mercantile Exchange) competitions.
