Research
After you research your stocks, you will begin trading.

Trading
To help you understand the stock market a little easier, we will be using MarketWatch.com. a game.

  1. You can actually do research within MarketWatch, however, you should have already completed your Research worksheet.  Remember, by buying stock in a bunch of different sectors or industries, you are diversifying your portfolio and that is exactly what you want.
  2. You will be given $10,000 of fake money to trade on the market. 
  3. Go to Market Watch and create a username and password.
  4. Now, for Period 1, go to MarketWatch.com/game/pfp1f19. For Period 2, go to MarketWatch.com/game/pfp2f19.
  5. Select the Join button and type in the password: Raiders.
  6. You now can begin trading and your instructor will demonstrate how.
  7. You will have your portfolio for one year if you choose to do so.
  8. During the rest of the semester, it is up to you to check on your stocks, trade if you want, and see how your portfolio grows.
  9. YOU MUST INVEST IN AT LEAST 5 STOCKS AND 1 MUTUAL FUND BY FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 1ST.
  10. Apply What You Learned You are ready to apply what you have learned.  After you sign up on MarketWatch, you will take the "Time to Invest Worksheet" and invest in a minimum of 5 stocks and 1 mutual fund.  Before you begin trading remember to do the math: Share Price * Number of Shares=Dollar Value Spent on that Stock
