Have you ever wanted to buy and sell stock on the market? However, you are unsure how to go about this; then the Jamaica Stock Exchange’s Stock Market Games present the ideal way to learn how to buy and sell shares. The JSE Stock Market Game is a simulation game that Jamaica Stock Exchange developed to promote a better understanding of the stock market and how it works. There are three games geared towards different target audiences. These are:
The Stock Market Game for High Schools
The Stock Market Game for High Schools is aimed at High School students in 4th to 6th forms. It is designed to strengthen students’ critical thinking skills and build confidence and self-esteem. Most importantly, the stock market game will instill an understanding of the need to save and invest at an early age and ensure that when students leave high school they have the basic knowledge of how to buy and sell shares.
The Tertiary Stock Market Game
This game is geared towards tertiary students to assist them in having a better appreciation of the Stock Market and to understand the basic process of buying and selling shares on the stock market.
The Public Stock Market Game
This was developed to generate interest among the general public in how to create wealth through the buying and selling of stocks or shares on the market. This game is very user friendly and gives persons playing a quick appreciation on what happens on the market.
