What To Expect at Live Events
The floor of the New York Stock Exchange at the peak of activity is excited, noisy, crowded and appears chaotic. Once the game gets moving, you should expect the same atmosphere at your event.
It is important not to underestimate exactly how noisy it can get. Many have found they need to shout to be heard by someone only a couple feet away. You will quickly learn why professional traders on stock exchanges use hand gestures!
Floor traders are always busy. Expect it to take time to find a trader and attract his/her attention, especially if two or three people are in line!
It's easy to lose track of your portfolio and cash balance in the rapid buying and selling of stocks. Stay on top of these things - it takes a lot of time to get printouts, and you only get a limited number!
