Abstract

In this project, we designed and built an online application that allows users to trade options on futures of the S & P 500. We proposed that with experience in trading the participants ability to earn profits would increase. In our written portion, we described the mechanics of derivatives trading. A social perspective of derivatives trading and the implication of electronic trading were written about using editorial background information. The results from our application are catalogued within our report.
