Helpful things to know...
You cannot put all your money into one company - this is because there is a rule in the Game that stops you from doing this. You can only spend up to 25% of your $50,000 in a company (that’s $12,500 at the most). This diversification rule is intended to encourage you to spread your risk by investing in a selection of companies rather than putting all your eggs in one basket.
You are limited to placing a total of twenty (20) orders per trading day - this includes both buy and sell orders.
Brokerage - this is the fee for buying and selling shares. In the Game, brokerage is $20 for each order filled with a value up to $10,000. For each trade over $10,000 brokerage is charged at a rate of 0.2% of the trade value.
How to solve a technical problem - please talk with your teacher first and take a look at ‘Unable to complete order’ (PDF 2KB).
To be eligible for prizes - Please make sure that you have purchased shares, within the Game, in 4 different companies over the Game period. Plus one buy transaction must have been completed by 17 April 2014. (See Rules for further information)
