Buying and Selling on the ASX
Posted 23 Aug 2019 in
The College students are getting a hands on experience through the ASX Sharemarket game on buying and selling shares, creating watchlists as well as researching their options. Each student received a virtual $50,000 cash when they registered and can invest their money over a 10 week period in 220 companies listed on the ASX. The prices the students are buying and selling at are live, the same as if they were trading in the live market. This unique experience is as close to real life share trading as they can get.
Through this opportunity the students will be able to develop their knowledge of the sharemarket, learn how to research companies, discover the importance of wise investment decisions and gain greater knowledge of economic and world events.
The Year 11 and 12 students have previously participated in the game and were able to show the Year 10 students how it all worked.
