The Market Simulation Series

The Rotman Commerce Trading Group is collaborating with the BMO Financial Group Finance Research and Trading Lab in hosting the Rotman Commerce Trading Group Market Simulation Series! Join us at the FRT lab for this 3-part series where you can learn the fundamentals of trading using the Rotman Interactive Trading Market Simulator. Regardless of your level of experience, receive hands-on training and build up your skills!

A certificate of excellence will be awarded to participants upon completion, given that they meet the following criteria in order:


  1. Student must attend all 3 sessions – 1x Beginner, 1x Intermediate, 1x Advanced. (Attendance will be taken)

  2. During the sessions, the student must be actively engaged.

  3. During the session, while trading, the student’s profit should be greater than 0 (zero)

Once awarded with the certificate, participants can also apply for the co-curricular record (CCR). The CCR captures the skills and experiences of students on an official record. Some benefits of CCR recognition include:

  • Highlight and reflect on the skills you’ve gained

  • Get engaged in a variety of workshops and track your progress.

  • Record your participation on an official university document.

  • Connect with your CCR community, build your network, and enhance your resume.
