ASX Sharemarket Game

​​ ​​​​​​​
​​The ASX sharemarket game brings the world of finance and stockbrockering into the classroom. At Bowen High students are given the opportunity to participate in this Nation wide competition where they will attend meetings once a week and learn about the inner workings of the stock market. Students are then able to put their learning into practice. In teams, students receive a virtual $50,000 that they can invest over a 10 week period, in 200 companies listed on the ASX. The prices that students buy and sell at are the same as they would get on the live market, making the experience as close to real life share trading as you can get. 

The game runs twice a year with the first game starting in Late Feburary and the second in Mid-August.

    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
  • The Game can be part of a school subject or an extra-curricular activity offered to students
  • It is free to play and as a bonus students can win great cash prizes​
