Trading Room Technology

 

 

The strength of Florida Atlantic University’s Trading Room is directly correlated with its technology (hardware and software), infrastructure and design which transform the room into a credible simulated trading floor environment.

In addition to the software available in the Trading Room, it also features the latest in audio and video technology to bring the market and trading floor to the classroom.

The centerpiece of the Trading Room showcases real time feeds from Reuters i, which refreshes 20 times every second. The data are displayed on two 64 block ticker boards – one in the front lobby of the room, and a streaming ticker that runs along the side and back walls.
