Description: Using equity, fixed income and derivatives securities on a paper trading platform through Interactive Brokers, individuals trade and make markets. Deutsche bankers meet with students to conduct practice sessions in April at which time pre-trade trading strategies are submitted to Deutsche. The competition runs from March 25 to April 30 of the first year of the program. At the conclusion of the competition, students submit a post-trade summary analysis. In addition to an individual’s trading performance, these pre-trading and post-strategy papers are evaluated by Deutsche Bank as qualitative factors in honoring the winners at a reception following the conclusion of the competition.
