Special Trading Room Sessions

The Trading Room is an important facility that is heavily used by both academics and PhD students for teaching and research at the Cardiff Business School. In this year, we will arrange for flexible drop-in sessions during the whole conference for visitors to gain hands-on experience in the Trading Room at Cardiff and its associated facilities (such as Bloomberg and Thomson Reuters Eikon) that may be used for teaching and research in practice. There will also be a special session of 'Financial Market Trading and Behavioral Finance using the Trading Room'.
