Course description

Electronic Trading in Financial Markets (Equity and other)

The world of trading is now dominated by electronic trading platforms. Participants in financial markets need to understand how trading has been changed by the prevalence of these platforms. We discuss electronic trading in all these markets and also the implications for market participants of the presence of High Frequency Traders (algorithmic or flash traders). This one-day course will provide delegates with an understanding of the ways in which information technology is used in trading financial markets. The course will primarily focus on exchange traded equities, but will also consider bond and currency markets

Suitability - Who should attend?

This course is suited to delegates with limited experience of financial markets, who want to learn more about the changing dynamics of trading in bonds, currencies and equities. Attendees who would benefit include those new to financial dealing roles as well as those in compliance, accounting, IT and other middle or back office functions that interact with the trading function of investment banks, dealers and asset managers.
