All first-year full and part-time students participate in a trading competition directed and underwritten by Deutsche Bank. Using equity and fixed income derivatives securities on a paper trading platform through Interactive Brokers, individuals trade and make markets during specified open market hours. Results of the competition are tallied and posted with the winners determined relative to the performance measurements specified in the trading cases. The top ten winners are recognized, with the top three winners awarded cash prizes (1st: $1,000; 2nd: $500; 3rd: $250). The winners will be honored in the company of all participants and members of the MSCF Steering Committee at a reception hosted by Deutsche Bank in New York on January 2014.
