20140521_111933Visit in Future First – 1st Note – Adi Rotberg

Future First is a global company that performs proprietary trading in derivatives. 

The company is one of the leading companies in its field, providing consulting and research services of the international financial markets. The Company has no customers and makes its own trade-related decisions. The company’s motto is “You make money through intellect, trading skill and hard work”.

During our visit we talked about the definition of derivatives and we were asked to make fast decisions regarding trading actions. We also talked about the characteristics a trader must have in order to be successful. A trader has to feel the market and know when to sell the losing stock and when to buy the winning stock, what usually happens wrongly among private investors. During our visit we were also heard a lecture on the global economy.

In conclusion, the visit in the trading room was very interesting, and at the end of it we also experienced in trading and felt the market by simulation performed in the company’s office.

I think this tour was very educational and I recommend continuing this visit in the following courses.

"Futures First"- 2nd Note – By Lital Hengali

On May 21st we visited an international company name "Futures First". According to Oliav (Research analyst), Unlike other Futures First companies around the world, the company in Israel is trading only with International Rates.

The first thing that caught my eyes when I entered the company's offices was that all the rooms were separated by glass walls and glass doors. I'm guessing it's for transparency, which very important in companies like this.

The interesting part for me was when Boaz, The trading room manager, explained us that Futures are one type of derivatives and what are the benefits and the criticism of derivatives. He also talked about Futures Contract which is an agreement to buy or sell something in known price and known date in the future. A topic that we talk a lot about in different courses during the MBA.
