The need to write in code has existed since man developed a society where communication was essential to survival. Whether in war, in love or in commerce, coding information became necessary, developing initially on a basic level, then through more and more complex means, in order to ensure confidentiality of the transmitted information. Just as knowing to code is important, decryption is equally necessary in order to be able to translate codes from adversaries and competitors.
If one considers for a moment, the Californian Institute of Trading’s choice to include this discipline in school’s curriculum is not so unusual. In the age of binary trading, coding and decrypting have evolved more and more, and now all information in the commercial and financial world must be analyzed and translated. While stock exchanges appear clear for all to see, the mechanisms that rule the markets and the transmitted information sent by companies are all coded. The CIT guarantees its students that they will learn to interpret trading room events by reading simple information appearing on a screen.
