Using The Stock Market Game™, participants will explore the financial world. This class will allow “investors” to learn about mutual funds, margin accounts, shorting stocks, support and resistance levels, bonds, interest rates, how broker costs affect total returns of your retirement funds, the Federal Reserve Bank, as well as personal insurance and health care options. You will have ten weeks to maximize "portfolio" returns with an online simulation of investing in global stocks and capital markets using actual quotes on stock exchanges and mutual funds. Trades will be entered on an individual computer web site that will keep track of trades and show holdings and returns. Since 1977, The Stock Market Game has helped more than 13 million students learn about the financial markets. Basic computer skills are required. Lecture (plus questions). Facilitated Discussion. Listening to Music or Other Audio. Viewing Videos. Field Trip(s).
