Trading Floor

Trading Floor is designed for outreach and enrichment activities or induction days and enables students to experience the excitement of buying and selling on a real open outcry trading floor.

The game provides a rewarding and enjoyable activity that is a gateway to developing or demonstrating an understanding of business and finance. It will also help students develop their personal, learning, thinking and functional skills. 

In recreating the excitement of a real trading floor, the activity provides a platform for students to learn how to work together as a team, solve problems under pressure, analyse information and communicate effectively.
