QC Economics


Trading Competition Spring 2017

The Economics & Business Club and the Economics Department in association with the Department of Social Science and working with Experiential Education at QC are organizing a Trading Competition within Queens College that will take place from March 6 to April 28 2017.

We will get Ameritrade as a free trading platform (you can download it on Windows or Mac). Students will have a simulated trading account and will be able to trade stocks, ETF, futures, forex and options. So, it is an excellent opportunity for you to learn about the markets. The platform should be available before the competition so you can have some time to be familiar with it. We will organize sessions to discuss about the platform and strategies you can adopt. It is subject to changes in case of technical problems that could provoke a delay.

Participants must be undergraduate or graduate students currently enrolled at Queens College. Cash prize for winners will be offered.

If you are interested, please send your full name and email address to Luc Marest (Visiting Assistant Professor at the economics Department) at luc.marest@qc.cuny.edu so we can send you an email during the entire time of the competition for updates. You can go to see Luc Marest at PH306H if you have any question.
