Item Description

With alll the news of the stock market highs and lows, have you ever wondered what actually happens on the floor and how trades are executed?  Join Stone dad Jan Cornelissen on a tour of the floor of the CBOT or CBOE, and witness the action first-hand.  After a century and a half of floor trading around the world, these two trading floors are the last "Open Outcry" trading floors in the world, while the rest of the exchanges have converted to pure electronic trading. You will be guided on one of these trading floors by a floor trader who will explain how open outcry trading works, and why other floors have moved to  electronic trading.  Prepare for a lot of noise, a lot of action, and a lot of excitement!  

After that lunch will be offered at Tutto's Italiano, an italian restaurant were traders take refuge after a bad (or good) day and to discuss market activity with friends.
