Join us for the Junior Achievement of Idaho Stock Market Challenge on October 8th, 2019 at the Boise Centre. The evening begins with a reception at 5:00 p.m.. Hors d'oevers and libations will be served.
At 6:00 p.m. the New York Stock Exchange floor comes alive in Boise with the Opening Bell on 60 days of simulated trading. Your team will buy, sell, and manage your portfolio of fictitious stocks. Every 60-80 seconds represents a day. The pace is feverish; the excitement levels are high as you compete against other teams from companies around the Treasure Valley to lay to the JA Stock Market Challenge trophy.
Your insight on reading news tips, your skills at evaluating trends, and managing risk will be very helpful in this simulation. Floor traders will be on hand to help you execute your trades and everything will be on display on the video screens around the room. Will your team have the skills to move to the top of the leaderboards and stay there till the Closing Bell?
Not only will the evening be different than your typical networking reception, but you will learn more about Junior Achievement programs in Idaho and how you can support our efforts to give young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their future, and make smart academic and economic choices.
