ASX Sharemarket Games have been a cornerstone of ASX investor education for more than 25 years. ASX offers two games each year for the general public and two for secondary school students across Australia. The Sharemarket Games allow participants to become familiar with the mechanics of share trading and to develop an appreciation of the risks and benefits associated with investing in the sharemarket.
Shareholder Games players are given a hypothetical amount of money as well as access to educational tools such as company announcements, charting and watch-lists to assist them in making informed decisions about stock selection.
