Every day we hear about stock market. It's going up! It's going down! European crisis! Financial meltdown! New historical highs! The end of Euro coin! In the end what is the stock market? Can it be modeled? Is it made of companies or is it made by traders? In this workshop we will explain the basis of the financial markets and to show that physics is already part of this and still has a lot to offer.
