The Stock Market Game gives students this opportunity - the game - How much money can you make with $100,000 during the ten week game? This game doesn't focus on long term investing. It's focus is short term investing, placing educated decision making on real world events, news, fads, and market conditions.
During the game, meetings will focus on topics such as dividend investing, the concepts of stocks splitting, 52 week highs and lows, portfolio diversification, placing market orders and limit orders, short selling, mutual funds, bonds, and more!
The best part about the game is that if you miss a meeting due to your involvement in sports, other clubs, or religious activities, you can still play in the game!
