Collegiate DECA Stock Market Game Trading Ends April 14

Collegiate DECA members currently participating in the Spring Collegiate DECA Stock Market Game have until Saturday, April 14, to complete the competition.

The following requirements must be met for members participating:

  • 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 4:00 PM EST on Saturday, April 14, 2017.
