Sharing from our students
Unlike the other team members, I was not familiar with the China A-shares market in the past and I only knew about the Hong Kong stock market. Participating in this investment competition has deepened my understanding of the mainland stock market. Besides, the tools and operations of this competition is very close to the reality. Through the simulated investment, I can try different investment strategies and know more about the feelings of investors investing in the stock market in real life, I have benefited a lot. Thank you for the teacher’s support and the analysis of my team members. In the exchange of views between the group members, it has provided a great help for me. —Carmen Lau

This competition gave me a chance to study different stock picking strategies. It helped me to build the right mindset and attitude towards financial investments. Of course, we could not have won this award without the continued supports of teammates and the mentor. It is because constructive communications of investment experiences and thoughts among teammates is the key to success. —Travis Cai
This competition gave me a great chance to experience real life security trading operations. Since I have no experience in stock investment, I have learned a lot about the details of security transaction trading rules. Moreover, I learned different techniques on stock price movement predictions. I also learned how to construct a portfolio so as to manage the risk. My teammates helped me a lot because they gave me valuable advises so that I could make sound judgements. —Chen Jun Tian
