On Campus Events

Daily Market Update Skills Course

Time & Location: Rome 812, Wednesday, April 5 

Join Professor Leeds and the SAIS International Finance Club (SIFC) for a skills course highlighting the creation of a daily market update. Students will learn to analyze markets and write about them.

Students will have the opportunity to sign up to produce a daily market update to be distributed to SIFC members.

Our goal is to distribute a SIFC-produced market update daily, highlighting price action during the previous trading session, what that price action means, and how it fits into a larger narrative. In other words: what happened, why did it happen, and why do we care? Major markets of interest will include global bonds, equity indices, currencies, commodities, fed funds futures, Eurodollar futures, notable corporate bonds or CDS premiums, and other relevant economic and financial news. One paragraph will be devoted to descriptive price action and major drivers. One or two subsequent paragraphs will detail the major stories and provide more color regarding the market reaction.

Off-Campus Events

“The geopolitical impact of China’s economic diplomacy”, Wednesday March 8th

In recent years, China has expanded its global and regional economic footprint. Through new institutions, such as the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) and the One Belt, One Road initiative, Beijing seeks to carve out a leadership position within the global economy. Meanwhile, the United States’ failed effort to pass the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and President Trump’s rhetoric against China and multilateral trade agreements during his campaign have raised concerns for the U.S. role in the Asia-Pacific economy. In particular, Japan, a TPP member, must now recalibrate and figure out how best to situate itself between a looming China and a retreating United States. For more information and RSVP, click here.


Georgetown Law, 2017 International Trade Update, March 9th-10th

The year ahead will bring major changes and critical decisions affecting trade and customs law. There will be a new administration in Washington, DC after eight years, and trade issues were a major focus of the presidential campaign. There is new trade legislation on the horizon and new laws are being enforced. Both lawyers and their clients need to stay abreast of all that is happening domestically and globally. As always, our annual program will provide you with the analyses, insights, and solutions you need to address and solve your most pressing issues. For more information, click here.
