The Premise

Teams are staked to a fictitious bankroll (from $500,000 to $1,000,000) to invest in stocks.

Only instead of taking weeks, months or years to watch the performance of their investment, they get feedback within minutes.  That's because each trading day is between 60 and 90 seconds long.

Every second counts as students track stock movement, analyze industry trends, weigh news announcements (good and bad) and execute trades.

In the classroom event, the trades are entered directly by the students.  In the live event, students must find a floor trader who enter the transaction through a tablet PC.  Short of volunteers?  We even support text-message trading, allow students to submit their own transactions!
