High School Stock Market Game Registration Closes October 3
DECA members interested in participating in the 2016-17 Stock Market Game need to register their team by October 3, 2016.
The following requirements must be met for members to participate:
- The first trade must be made by 4 PM on October 17, 2016.
- Teams must maintain a maintain a minimum of three different types of securities (a stock, a bond, and a mutual fund) through the end of the trading session.
- Teams may not invest more than 33% of their total equity multiplied by 1.5 in any one company. If a stock in a team portfolio increases in value and places the investment beyond 33% of their total equity multiplied by 1.5, they will be able to retain their shares but unable to purchase additional shares of that stock. This rule is the Maximum Equity Rule. The SMG system will automatically enforce this rule.
- The last trade must be made by December 15, 2016, at 4PM.
