Stock Market Simulation

Assessing the Risks and Rewards of Buying and Selling Stock


From now until April 30th you will be participating in a Stock Market Simulation; competing against your classmates and ME for the top spot! Starting with a virtual cash amount of $10,000, you will strive to create the best-performing class portfolio using a live trading simulation. Along the way, you will experience the risks and rewards attached to playing the stock market. During the simulation, you will actively observe the ups and downs of each company, while scanning the news to gain a sense of how and why stock prices fluctuate.
