A great session was had by all at today’s outreach session for the year 12’s of the Goodwin Academy at Canterbury Christ Church University.
The aim of the session was to educate and give the students an introduction to the the world of Financial Markets. We looked at how various markets worked: Commodities, FX and Equities. We also used the Bloomberg suite of computers in the dedicated trading room at the University, to give the students an introduction to this most valuable tool. We also looked at some of the best (Buffett, Soros) and worst traders (Leeson) and what makes them tick. One of the more enjoyable elements of the day was the trading game, where the students were allowed to put their new found knowledge and skills into practice!
Already looking forward to next months Outreach session in June! If you’re interested in organising anything like this for your school please do get in touch.
