As a platform to promote leadership and innovation, AYLUS encourages members to explore the wonders of stock market. The mission of this activity is to spread financial literacy, and to make learning about investing fun and rewarding. Navigating through the turmoil of stock market often puts human traits to the test. Professional knowledge, strategic thinking, sound judgement, patience, risk-taking, and many other characteristics are all required for one to survive in the rogue waves of the stock market. By participating in a stock trading challenge following the heels of the real market condition, young members could not only have the chance to incubate the skills in a new territory, but most importantly, also to learn valuable lessons that they can use throughout life.
Two teams will be formed, namely the A team and the B Team. AYLUS members join one of them by team coordinator’s invitation. During the challenge time, two dedicated Facebook groups will be created to allow players to facilitate team collaboration.
Lasted for 4 months, this event is now concluded with a success. Every participant had the opportunity to learn financial knowledge and gained first-hand experiences of how the market works. As the top performer in the team, two members receives honorable recognition:
A Team: Christie Yu
B Team: Leo Tong
