The Trading Floor Overview

’Buy buy buy’ , ‘sell sell sell’, experience the buzz, the intensity and the high stakes competition of the Trading floor, our authentic simulation of working the world stock markets.  Rival syndicates take all the risks, make all the decisions and use their intuition to succeed in a high energy game of buying low and selling high.

How Does it Work?

The event begins with the host, known as the ‘Trader’, entering in his pinstripes and braces.  He puts the teams through their paces with some quick energisers, then explains how the trading floor activity works.  Teams allocate various roles such as finance manager, investment analyst, media analyst and who could forget the Trader. Roles are swapped throughout the activity to ensure everyone experiences each section of the Trading simulation. Syndicates are issued with a team pack which includes information about all the companies they will be investing in.  There are 10 company portfolios that cover a diverse range of industries from construction to pharmaceutical, finance to football. 

When the trading bell rings for the first trading window all eyes are on the trading screen which constantly changes as stock prices fall and rise.  There are also live news reports and tweets which change the dynamic of the market. Teams respond accordingly and start doing deals at the trading desks at the front of the room. 

Each of the trading windows lasts about 20 minutes and the ‘Trader’ is constantly commenting and referring to developments, maintaining a high level of focus and energy.

As the bell rings at the end of the final window, syndicates add up their total value and the winning team is announced.
