IS 318 visits Jane St. Hedge Fund

Last Friday, I took a small group of kids to visit Jane Street Hedge Fund. Sandor Lehoczky, our kind host, gave us a quick but extremely informative lesson on stocks, currencies, and trading, and then took us on a tour of the trading floor.

After the markets closed, we played bughouse with the traders.

Great field trip! ? Enigma machine ? Was that on display at the hedge fund or at a nearby place?

Benchley Park (sp?) British chess masters were involved with solving the Enigma codes so there is a chess link I guess.
