Stevenson High Update - All 6 teams finished in top 10 in state competition.

If you've been following the Traders Blog for a while, you are probably familiar with our sponsor school, Stevenson High in Lincolnshire, Illinois. I was contacted by a passionate teacher who wanted to provide his students with a tool to help them increase their success in their stock market competitions. I want to share an update we received from the economics team after they participated in the Illinois State Economics competition. They did great and I am so happy to share their success with you.


It has been some time since we have communicated. I want to tell you how well our Economics Club performed in the Illinois State Economics competition. Of the 42 teams we placed 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 9th, all in the top 10. Last year we had one place in the top ten and that was 2nd.

Thanks to MarketClub for all the help you provided. The students used MarketClub for research and informative articles. It was well worth their time and, as can be seen by the results, important for their understanding of how basic economic principles can be applied to real world situations.

Thank you so much for your interest in what we are doing here at Stevenson and I hope we can continue with you next year.

  1. What a great idea... and great use of this tool. Hopefully what they learned more than anything is responsible money management, not emotional investing.

  2. Way to go!!!! They should teach trading in all schools. My son at the age of 9 got me into trading. He is now 21 and we talk everyday about the economy of the U.S., world markets, financial planning, etc. I think it is awesome to get children involved in something to inspire them about the world in which we live.


  3. Way to go Stevenson ...CONGRATULATIONS! I am retired , follow the
    markets , into trading forex(EUR/USD)...would like to VOLUNTEER MY
    TIME to assist the lead teacher of the Club...Sincerely,
