Trading Technologies recently provided the trading platform for the University of Chicago Midwest Trading Competition. The event centered on algorithmic trading and attracted students from some of the most prestigious universities in the U.S. and Canada.
At the center of the competition was the TT® platform, including our visual programming interface, ADL®. While this was the fifth year for the annual competition, it marked the first year of our involvement. The organizers approached Trading Technologies last summer and told us they were looking to improve the event. In particular, they wanted a new trading platform that could make the competition realistic, providing students with an experience that truly replicated how the markets operate.
