Live Trader: Live Trading Market Competition

On Friday 6th December 2019 we held our first ever live trader competition! Our MSc students had the opportunity to access a world-class trading platform and operate as hedge fund traders for the day. The session was led by experienced industry expert William who gave the students training and guidance.

“It was great to trade the major US data release with students from QMUL. 

Nicholas Paduano- MSc Finance, stood out as the best performer for a consistent interest rate expectation strategy; going short Gold, US T-Notes and the EUR/USD. Most impressive was how he maintained his discipline and avoided overtrading in the volatility.”- William de Lucy

Congratulations to all students who took part and thank you to Will and his team for putting on such a fantastic event
