The Investment Game
Learn about investing while having fun with your friends!
Investing money in the stock market might sound like a big deal, something only adults do. Learning now can have a big impact on how smart you are with your investments later in life. Understanding how the stock market works is a great way to improve your math skills along with social studies, reading, and writing. The best part is, you don’t have to invest any real money to start learning about investing in the stock market. Here is how to play the stock market game!
It is easy to play games with the stock market because all the information that investors use with real money is publicly available. Here are a few rules you can use with your family, friends, or classmates to play with the stock market. You can even do it alone, if you want.
If you want to know more, especially if you want to invest real money, stop by your credit union and ask a few questions. They’ll set you up with a financial advisor who will be more than happy to get you started. From there, you and your parents can make choices when it comes to investing in the real stock market.
