Article on Bradford Trading Room accepted for publication in Cogent Economics and Finance
Abhi Sharma, senior lecturer in Economics at the University of Bradford School of Management, has had an article on the Bradford Trading Room accepted for publication in Cogent Economics and Finance.
The Bradford Trading Room provides students with hands-on experience in a simulated trading environment. This gives students a feel for real investment decisions made in industry and they learn how to deal responsibly with financial and economic market data. The Trading Room uses Bloomberg Professional - the industry's most widely used financial information software package.
The article "Use of Bloomberg Professional in support of finance and economics teaching" evaluates the use of the specialist software and provides a critical overview of the main challenges involved in making effective use of a trading room.
