2019 ASX Schools Sharemarket Game (2019 Game 1 begins on 7 March 2019 )

While you teach your students about investing and the Sharemarket, they can put into practice what they are learning by playing the Sharemarket Game. Students receive a virtual $50,000 they can invest over a 10 week period, in 200 companies listed on the ASX. The prices students buy and sell at are the same prices as they would get in the live market so this is as close to real life share trading as you can get.

As a result of playing the Game your students will:

  • Develop their knowledge of the sharemarket.
  • Learn how to research companies.
  • Discover the importance of wise investment decisions.
  • Gain a greater knowledge of economic and world events.
  • Begin to learn more about investing which is beneficial for their future.

2019 Game 1 begins on 7 March 2019 and ends on 15 May 2019.

There are teacher lesson plans and resources available once you register for the Game. Also see  the document - ASX Schools Sharemarket Game - How teachers integrate the Game into their lessons

There are reports about past winners (including strategies they used when playing the game)  in past editions of The EBE Journal - Journal of the Economics and Business Educators NSW.
