Dear Traders, About six years ago Peoria Notre Dame High School began a project within our economics class dealing with futures trading. The lesson culminates with a mock pit trading experience (we then cover the migration to electronic markets and their pros and cons). In the class we cover the roles of hedging and speculating and provide a general overview of the futures markets and their history as risk management tools. Over the course of the last few years a number of you have been kind enough to join us in playing the role of a retail trader by placing orders in our mock exchange. I know a number of your are tremendously busy but I'd encourage you to give the project a look. We try to run all of our sections of senior economics students through the project so the trading takes place multiple times throughout the year. You do not have to commit to all the various sessions. Our first one is next Friday Oct 21 2:35 pm to 3:20 pm. If you have an interest I'd like to collect your email through the link below.
