Bulls and Bears: Understanding Today's Stock Market

Have you ever wondered how the stock market works? How are prices determined? What is the NYSE or NASDAQ? What is a bear, pig or a bull market? How do you know when a company is a good investment? What causes a stock price to go up and down? How do you read the stock tables in the newspaper or online?

Explore the answers to these and many more questions. You will build a stock portfolio and put your knowledge to use in an abbreviated stock market simulation game using familiar companies. Teams will get an opportunity to defend their investment decisions. You'll be given $5,000 in “adventure” dollars to learn the ins and outs of how to invest, how to track investments, and how to monitor success. Learn the importance of saving, budgeting, and financial stability.
