Watson Trading Floor

At the opening of the Trading Floor in 2001, Dr. Janice Jadlow, Head of the Department of Finance, said the faculty’s plans for the trading floor are limited only by their imaginations. “Not only will students receive instant feedback on the validity of their decisions concerning everything from energy futures to dot.com start-ups to blue-chip firms, the faculty will be able to set up historical parameters and let students experience events like the infamous 1929 stock-market crash.”
