Course description

Equity Markets - On-site Course

We imagine our orders being sent to an exchange and executed by humans on noisy floors. While the market floor has always been an iconic image, it is as archaic as an 8-track tape. Today trading is electronic, low cost and done in millionths of a second. Even with an undergraduate degree or an MBA in finance, it doesn’t prepare you for the realities of how our equity markets work today. 

What is the mysterious dark liquidity and co-location? What may have caused the flash crash? Institutions need to understand how to trade blocks in a complex environment using Transaction Cost Analysis (TCA), algorithmic techniques, new order types to achieve the sought after best execution. This seminar will describe the equity trading markets and the issues faced by the pension and mutual funds and other institutional asset managers, as well as sell side firms. It will start with an historical perspective and continue to describe the current issues facing market participants.

Who should attend?

This course is suitable for Traders and Portfolio Managers.
