Nate K. '28 and Simon T. '28 earned first place honors within the elementary school division of the Stock Market Game! Nate and Simon received an account with access to a hypothetical $100,000 to invest in common stocks listed on the New York and American Stock Exchanges and the Nasdaq Stock Market.
During the ten-week simulation, they traded stocks, reviewed their portfolio, and made changes based on the value of their current holdings, brokerage commissions, return on investment, team or individual ranking, and other information.
Students qualified based on the success of their investment management strategy.
The Stock Market Game™ (SMG) is an educational simulation that teaches about the stock markets, the American economic system, and the global economy.
