Welcome to the stock game.  If you have never owned or bought a stock before this will be a learning experience for you.  We will play this game for two weeks.  During this time you will be graded on participation of the game.  The game is online and you will have $100,000 to buy and sell stocks as you wish.  The idea is to make as much money as you can in the two weeks. We will be learning about speculative and blue chip stocks.  You will learn how to buy and sell stocks on margin and learn how to make a quick profit (hopefully).       

You will be playing against one another so try not to share you good stock tips with too many people so you can take advantage of a good pick.
