Bring the world into your classroom with the ASX Sharemarket Game
While you teach your students about the Sharemarket, they can put into practice what they are learning. Students receive a virtual $50,000 that they can invest over a 10 week period, in 200 companies listed on the ASX. The prices students buy and sell at are the same prices as they would get in the live market so this is as close to real life share trading as you can get.
As a result of playing the Game your students will:
Develop their knowledge of the sharemarket
Learn how to research companies
Discover the importance of wise investment decisions
Gain a greater knowledge of economic and world events
Begin to learn more about investing which is beneficial for their future
The Game can be part of a school subject or an extra-curricular activity offered to students
It is free to play and as a bonus students can win great cash prizes
The Game has been redesigned and has a range of new features.
See when a student last logged in or if they are active

How the Game works
If you are a teacher, you need to register for the Game and then sign your students up to play the Game.
If you are a student, you need to ask a teacher to sign you up.
Students compete either individually or in a group of 2 to 4 students
Students do research and decide which companies they will invest in
They buy and sell shares 'online' in any of the nominated ASX listed companies
Orders to buy or sell shares can be placed at any time. Orders will be executed when ASX TradeMatch® is open (10 am to 4.10 pm)
Orders will be processed as they match with what is in the live market via TradeMatch
Students can monitor their shares via their Game portfolio
There are teacher lesson plans and resources available once you register for the Game. If you would like to access the resources prior to registrations opening, please request via firstname.lastname@example.org
