After the Bell Panel Discussion on Trading in Today’s Markets:  Smart Strategies, Latest Technology, News Based Trading : Applications for Competitive Advantage Across Asset Classes | Thursday, March 22nd, 2012 | London

Our After the Bell panel discussions incorporate the "top-of-mind" issues for the trader - whether you're a high frequency trader, starting a prop shop or examining different trading strategies to take your firm to the next level, this event provides real world examples of what's working and why. And if you’re a technology and solution provider, these forums promote optimal networking opportunities with niche discussions on topics most pertinent to those of us working in the financial markets today.


Following discussions held in New York and Chicago, this London event addresses the areas our research has told us are of the most interest to the London trading community. Held after trading hours so as not to take time away from the desk, this event offers an optimum combination of topical discussion and industry networking at a cocktail reception immediately following the panels. Join us on March 22nd in London for another Mankoff Company event.
