Stock Market Game brings the excitement and tension of city share trading
Stock market game ‘The Stock Exchange’ is a fast moving action simulation of the London Stock Exchange, as it used to be. Each syndicate (or team) manage a portfolio of Company Shares, Gold and US Dollar currency, with the objective to maximise the value of their portfolio by the end of the game. Stocks and shares trade frantically between syndicates and through the ‘ShareDeal’ brokers at the Share Shop, with current prices displayed on computer screens at the Share Shop and on the large screen. Syndicates track the developing stories in newspapers and on the TV news to guide split second decisions on the purchase or disposal of their shares. The Stock Exchange Game is a fun and stimulating team building activity.
- Great for ice-breaking and bonding
- Excellent staff motivator
- Encourages strategic planning and team communication
- Stimulating and challenging
Our Stock Market Game
Our host will introduce the activity with a detailed briefing, featuring on screen graphics support. Each syndicate receives a ‘Portfolio Pack’ containing Company background notes, rules and information, role definitions and badges, plus £30,000 in Fun Money. Teams are given 15 minutes to assess the information, discuss and plan their strategy, and appoint roles.
The game runs over a fictitious week of world events. Trading opens on Day 1 when the ‘trading buzzer’ sounds. Syndicates can buy and sell shares through our traders on the Share Shop at the prices displayed, or negotiate with other syndicates and trade directly with them.
News & Information is revealed throughout the game via several different media: The Finance Daily Newspaper, Business Lunch TV News, Newsflashes and Gossip! Share prices change continuously throughout the game to reflect the markets, recent news and trading activity.
At the end of the ‘week’, as trading closes for the final time, all fun money and share certificates are totalled and the results/winners ready to announce shortly afterwards. It is normal to recognise the winning syndicate/s with a prize of some kind. Prizes are not included as standard, however, we will be pleased to arrange these for you, on request.
