JA Stock Market Challenge with Career Exploration Hour
The JA Stock Market Challenge with Career Exploration Hour is an exciting, fast-paced competition, which is centered on a software system that simulates a 60-day cycle of the stock market and its function of buying, selling, analysis and risk. Every 60 seconds represents a day of trading. The goal of each team (3-4 players) is to accumulate the highest possible net worth in their investment portfolio at the close of trading. The event is an evening of fun and excitement, where the stakes are high and the competition is fierce.
