The assignment is mainly a Stocks Game, so someone who knows how to deal with the Stock Market and Stocks can do the job.
Online Assignment/ Report
There will be an online stock market game, conducted through
simvest.com. Registration is required and is free. Students can use this
unique link to access the contest:
At the end of the second week, each student will be invited to join a
private contest by email, which will provide the password to log into
the relevant contest for this course. The contest will start from the
fourth week and will run for about 4 weeks. Further details about the
contest will be given out in class. Please note that students cannot use
any other online contests for this course.
At the end of the contest, each student will have to submit a report of
not more than 1,500 words, discussing the strategies and the results.
Each report should include records of account summary, trading history
and graphs on a weekly basis, placed in the appendix. The guidelines for
the report will be posted on Ryerson D2L Brightspace. The report will
be due on March 14, 2016.
You have already joined the contest, so just log in and click "Trade
now" tab in the middle of the page, besides the "Ranking Status", enter
the stock symbol that you want to buy and the number of shares, click
"Trade now" and the trading will be processed and the costs shown. You
only need to confirm it by clicking "Yes-Make the Trade" and the order
will be confirmed.
If you don't know the stock "symbol", click the link "Symbol" (? lookup)
just under the "Trade now" to find it. Alternatively, you can click the
"Symbol Lookup" on the left hand side panel. For example, Apple is
AAPL, Microsoft is MSFT, Ford Motors is F. If you want to buy 10 shares
of Ford, then enter 10 in one box and then F on the box next to it.
Every student needs to practice the trading, so please try it out as soon as possible. It's not that difficult.
In the report, marks are awarded based on four parts every week:
strategy, research, trading, results. If you had done some research and
picked a strategy during week 1, you can write them in the report and
may not lose all the marks for that week. But frankly, without the
trading, it's not possible to see whether you really implement those
strategy and research in the game, so you will still lose some marks in
week 1 if you didn't do any trading.
If you confirm this order, please do trading for 1st week today, as it is already started.
You need to do atleast trading three times till 3rd March.
