MSc Global Financial Trading students at Coventry University London Campus will now be able to practice real-time trading, using the award-winning trading platform Tradestation, as the London Campus becomes a member of TradeStation's Academic Programme.

Real-time trading on TradeStation complements a range of other open and closed trading simulations on Coventry University London Campus designated trading floor.

The trading floor allows students to benefit from interactive teaching of complex financial investments, including equities, fixed income, commodities, foreign exchange, and their derivatives. Students are also able to experience trading from both the buy-side and sell-side of the market.

The trading floor simulations are used across a wide range of programmes to include, for example, teaching Global Business students about factors influencing international trade and investment, and Oil and Gas Management students how oil prices are determined.
