The Philippine Stock Exchange cordially invites college students to join the PSE 2008 Inter-Collegiate Online Stock Trading Tourney.
The Online Stock Trading Tournament aims to sharpen the stock market skills of participating students by exposing them to a real-world trading experience -- but with the use of virtual money. The tournament runs parallel to real-time PSE stock prices, with online facilities (at www.pse.com.ph
) that are patterned after those of online existing brokers. Knowledge and techniques that the participating students get from the simulation game will come handy, if and when the participating students decide to invest in the stock market in the future.
The 2008 edition of the Tournament, which we dubbed “The PSE-Manila Times Equity Challenge,” will be mounted on a nationwide, inter-collegiate level. But unlike previous tilts, this edition is formatted not as an individual but as a team competition.
This PSE project will help popularize the stock market among Filipinos specifically, college students. As an added attraction, cash prizes and trophies await winners in all these competitions.
Free online registration will be until July 31. You may download registration guidelines at www.pse.com.ph
If you have questions regarding the event please call us at 6887537.Thank you very much and we hope to hear from you soon.
