Barker Trading Program student Justin Chapman finds his niche

Read Justin's Story

The Barker Trading Program was one of five university teams invited to compete in the first Trading After Dark: Campus Edition Challenge. Each team submitted trades totaling $100,000, with positions evaluated after one week. U of I placed second with 8 of 10 trades being profitable.

Trading program experiences set me apart from the competition. Employers were impressed with my depth of knowledge in markets and financial instruments for having just graduated. Devyn DeLeon, B.S. Finance
