Traders Trophy Worldwide
The Traders Trophy Worldwide is a competition which provides students with real-time experience as a trader in a simulated dealing room environment. The simulation developed by Oxyor is based on real life data and creates an environment that is almost identical to that of a trading room.
In the Traders Trophy Worldwide, students from universities around the world compete to become the best student trader of their country or possibly the world. The event is an initiative of Financial Games, which organizes financial competitions worldwide.
This competition enables students to show their talent and compete in a dynamic and playful competition and win prizes. At the same time (investment) banks, brokers or other financial institutions get the opportunity to attract and access talented students from top universities. The feedback from each simulation session will provide results and statistics offering insight into the talent of the group and individually.
