The JA Stock Market Challenge is an unpredictable ride through the highs and lows of the stock market! All the energy and excitement of the stock trading floor is simulated in this innovative, interactive, high-tech event. Teams of four compete in a race to accumulate the highest portfolio while learning the nuances of investing, trading, strategy, why companies issue stock, how actions in one place in the world impact the value of stock in another place, why the stock market is an integral part of our free enterprise system.

 

Each team begins the game with $500,000 trading dollars to invest in fictitious stock.
Once the trading begins, every 60 seconds is a new trading day in a volatile market!
Floor traders enter the team trades into handheld computers and the information is immediately transferred to big screens for all participants to see.

 

Players track their stock portfolio and their team’s standings on three massive screens.
Teams buy and sell stocks from “traders” that instantly send trades to the system.
Teams receive News Releases and Hot Stock Tips to help them evaluate stock performance.
The team with the largest portfolio after 60 days of trading WINS!

 

Prepare your students for the 2017 JA Stock Market Challenge:

Schedule valuable one or two 40 minute “Take Stock in Your Future” lessons taught by a JA volunteer to help your students understand the basics of the stock market. Please contact Senior Education Manager, Alycia Ivancie at 853‐1381, ext. 215 or aivancie@jawny.org.
