Financial Trading --- This course is about trading financial assets. The course is intended for MBA students that expect to take trading (market making) jobs, but it is also relevant for all students that expect to trade securities frequently. The course uses a combination of lectures and trading simulations/games conducted on the Ross School of Business trading floor to make students comfortable with ideas like order type, bid-ask spread, information, and dynamic hedging. Students that have taken the core should be prepared for this course.
