Trading on the London Stock Exchange is designed to give delegates a step-by step understanding of how the different trading services work. An overview of the primary markets gives relevance to the secondary markets, taking into account the single market in financial services across the EU and how that has shaped the operation and structure of our trading services. Reference to the Rules of the London Stock Exchange gives context to both electronic and off book trading. Live market data is used to give a real-time view of the trading services in an interactive learning environment.
