We have heard about the initiative on youtube after stumbling upon some interviews of the past editions. We have decided to participate because we are so eager to carry out some practical operations on the markets for earning experience. We do not have a particular target if not that of doing our best.
None of us have had any direct experience in trading before the University Trading Challenge. However, being students of economics, we all have had a wealthy background of knowledge about the financial markets, acquired during our university studies.”
In thanking them for the interview, we remind them that they still have few days left to get the highest delta performace (during April) in order to win the participation in the Top of the Top – trading duel that will be held in Rimini during the ITForum, next May, the 21st.The winning team will have the opportunity to challenge in a live trading session some professional traders.
One reason more to do your best. Good Luck The Sybils Uniba!!!
