The Berkeley Trading Competition is the West Coast’s premier intercollegiate trading competition hosted by Traders at Berkeley.
Traders at Berkeley is UC Berkeley's undergraduate quantitative finance club dedicated to cultivating professional and academic interest in quantitative finance and trading.
Who can attend the competition?
The event is open to all undergraduates and graduates in quantitative fields of study, including but not limited to Computer Science, Statistics, Mathematics, Data Science, etc. We aim to spark interest in a wide range of quantitative strategies and trading schemes as well as create a real-time trading environment for future quants and traders.
What Can You Expect
Participants will have the opportunity to network with trading firms throughout the full-day event. The competition will kick off with an opening ceremony after which participants will be put into random groups to trade against one another on a simulated trading platform developed by Traders at Berkeley. Participants have exclusive access to sessions hosted by our sponsors.
Do I Have To Attend All Parts of the Competition?
Participants are required to attend all sessions to be eligible for the food vouchers and prize money. We encourage participants to get involved in as many opportunities as available to them to make the most out of the event.
