Forex Workshop by Mr V. Rajagopal

Mine! Yours! Thanks nothing! Yours or Mine? These were the thoughts going around in the heads of the second year finance students at the end of a two day Forex workshop conducted at SIMSREE. Mr. V. Rajagopal, once chief dealer-Forex treasury in ICICI and Kotak Mahindra bank, introduced Forex markets and its various terminologies on Monday 29th August 2010. In a four hour session he explained the working of international Forex markets and the role of a dealer.

On Tuesday 30th August, he along with his colleague Mr. Subramanium conducted a day long workshop. In a setup which had 8 different banks with their respective currency dealers, information screens and phone lines, Mr. Rajagopal created a simulated Forex market. He kept all the dealers on their toes by constantly changing the macro-economic conditions. At the end of the session the students were both thrilled and exhausted. The workshop helped clear many concepts that had been studied in textbooks but never practiced.
