The Stock Market Game for Middle & High School Students

      Ka-ching! Middle School and High School students can sign up to play the Stock Market Game. The game starts on Tuesday, October 13 and ends Saturday, December 12. The Connecticut Stock Market Game is sponsored by SIFMA (Securities Industry And Financial Markets Association). Students can work individually or form teams to spend $100,000 in virtual money to build a diversified investment portfolio of stocks. Students enter their stock picks on the internet via the computer or a smartphone. Trades happen in real time so students experience how real-world events impact the capital market. Participants will be given information sheets describing the stock market and its components. Help is also available from experienced investors. A prize will be awarded to the top team.
