3.Each Team Gets $100,000 Each team gets $100,000 cash to start.
4.Invest for 10 Weeks October 4 to December 10 Real World never invest for just 10 weeks Strategy to win the game –Buy low cost & highly volatile stocks –Not a strategy for retirement or LT investing

7. Need Computer in Room Game is online from anywhere in World 24/7 Have just one student enter buy/sell for team Hardest part of the Game Kids Do Not Want to Spend Their $
8. $ held in Cash earn 2% In real world – you would want to Diversify not 100% in Stock To Win Game – Must spend $200,000 on Stock - all your cash + borrow $100,000
9. Buy on Margin Initial Margin is 50% Margin = Portfolio Value (PV) – Loan (L) Margin/PV = margin as a % of PV = 50% Eg 200,000 pv PV – L >= ,000 loan PV 100,000 margin L <=.50 PV PV = Stock + Cash
10. Margin Call If your collateral (portfolio value) decreases your broker (lender) may want more collateral (will make you sell stock) Game Maintenance Margin (MMR) is 30% ie., Margin = (PV – L) > =.30 PV or LOAN<=.70PV This requires a minimum PV > 1.43 (Loan) If you fall be low the MMR you get a Margin Call Must then (within 3 weeks) sell stock
11. Interest on Loan is 7%
12. Minimum Stock Price: $5
13. Brokerage Fee (Transaction Fee) You must pay 2% of the Value of each Buy and Sell transaction.
14. GA SMG – Extra Rules Not in the Manual 3 X 3 X 3 –1 st Transaction by end of 3 rd week –Buy a Minimum of 3 Stocks –Hold 3 Stocks for min of 3 Weeks
15. How Do You Win ? Buy Low Priced Volatile Stocks Kids want to by companies they have heard about (Nike, WalMart, Coke, Home Depot, etc) $100/sh – buy 1000 shs for $100,000 in 10 weeks $102/sh x 1000sh = $102,000 - a $2000 profit\ but after a brokerage fee (2% in & 2% out) actually loose money or $10/sh – buy 10,000 shs – for $100,000 in 10 weeks $12/sh – sell 10,000 shs – for $120,000 - a $20,000 profit NYSE – generally Higher priced and Larger companies NASDAQ – generally Lower priced and Smaller companies
16.On Last Day Do Not Sell Stock You win with the highest P.V. Avoid brokerage fees on the last day Cannot actually Buy $200,000 initially (ie, borrow $100,000) must pay $2000 brokerage fee on first $100,000 and then can only borrow approximately $98,000 and must pay 2% on the purchase with borrowed funds. You will only be able to purchase about $196,000 of Stock initially.
17. Short Sale You borrow your NEW briefcase for 3 weeks –but then sell it immediately for $100 (SHORT SALE) – because I know that on the 3 rd of February Mori Luggage is having a half priced sale on the exact same briefcase. I can buy a NEW briefcase back in 3 weeks for $50 and then give it back to you. (SHORT COVER) KO example - as stocks go up you can face unlimited losses
