Braemar College students win the day at Rotman Commerce’s inaugural high school trading competition

Rotman Commerce and the Rotman School’s BMO Financial Group Finance Research and Trading Lab played host yesterday to 64 high school students from 32 Toronto-area high schools, who participated in an all-day event on financial markets.

The students spent the morning learning about managing liquidity and market risk, and in the afternoon tested their knowledge in the first Rotman Commerce Market Simulation Challenge.
