On Monday, November 6, a group of Stillman School of
Business students along with Scott Rothbort, M.B.A., professor of
finance, had the opportunity to visit the New York Board of Trade
(NYBOT). While at the exchange, the students participated in a
simulated commodity futures trading session.
The event was part of the "NYBOT Ringside Goes Schoolside" program
where universities in the tri-state area are invited to the exchange.
The NYBOT was founded in 1870 and was known as the New York Cotton
Exchange (NYCE). It provides the world's premiere futures and
options markets for several internationally traded agricultural
commodities including cocoa, coffee, cotton, frozen concentrated orange
juice (FCOJ) and sugar.
