End of term Social

Team 6

We want to thank all of you who attended the end of term social event on December 8th, with special thanks to CFM Program Manager, Kim Tremblay and CFM co-director, Professor Justin Wan. It was an absolute pleasure to see you folks so invested in the gingerbread decorating competition that we organized. Truly, we were all very impressed with the wild variety and different interpretations of "decorating" the gingerbread houses.

Congratulations to the winning teams of the second Annual CFM 101 Team Competition

Winners of the Annual CFM 101 Team Competition and co-director, James Thompson

The Second Annual CFM 101 Team Competition was held in December. Teams were again required to choose from a basket of stocks to include in their portfolios to meet pre-set goals. Importantly, students did not know the basket of stocks from which their code must choose. This year, there were some devious and unexpected curve-balls thrown into stock ticker list in an attempt to get their code to do unexpected things. Happily, many groups wrote thorough code which produced very reasonable portfolios. Congratulations to our winning teams:
