Day 1 – NYSE
Quick update on our first excursion. We just completed a tour of the NYSE trading floor, as well as a seminar about the history and workings of the NYSE.
The Director of Education, Murray Teitelbaum, was so kind to introduce the group to the various market functions and technical trading functions on the floor. The insights we got went far beyond anything I had ever learned in class and I appreciated getting the insight scoop on NYSE. I found the history and background about the company itself most insightful.
After the seminar we were able to watch the trading floor from the gallery between the CNN and Bloomberg Booths. It was amazing being in the room, seeing, hearing, and feeling the excitement and flurry of activity going on below us. All in all, a fascinating experience and I can recommend to everybody to get a group together and sign up for a tour.
Deutsche Bank is next, followed by Avenue Capital, and dinner at Cellini!
