The Stock Trading Guru Board Game Competition ("the Competition") is organised by the Hong Kong Association for Business Education (HKABE) and The Investor and Financial Education Council (IFEC) and supported by the Education Bureau. It aims to help secondary school students learn some essential financial knowledge, and encourage good attitudes towards money management.
To help teachers teach money management at schools we have developed the Stock Trading Guru board game, produced related teaching resources and also delivered professional training to Business, Accounting and Financial Studies (BAFS) teachers. The game can help teachers teach "Stock Trading as an Investment" – a compulsory part of the revised BAFS curriculum. Currently more than 250 teachers have already been trained to use this teaching resource.
In view of the novel coronavirus situation, the Stock Trading Guru Competition date will be postponed to July 2020. We will announce the exact date and arrangements after schools resume classes.

Each school must have at least one BAFS teacher who has attended a Stock Trading Guru board game teacher workshop prior to the competition enrollment deadline to be eligible to join the competition. Teachers who have not joined a workshop previously or are interested in joining one again should enroll themselves in a workshop. Please see below for more details.
NB: All the game rules are detailed in the board game handbook (to be distributed after the workshop) and will be covered in the teacher workshop. There will not be additional training provided or briefing of the game rules on the day of the competition.
