We are a group of students with varying market experience looking to become more competent in the stock market. We believe the best way to do this is through gathering a diverse set of individuals who can continually build off each other’s ideas, allowing us to attack the market more thoroughly. If you’re interested in learning more about the stock market the BIC is perfect for you!
Our club hosts one large meeting on the second Sunday of every month. This meeting generally lasts around 45 minutes to an hour and will have some type of theme related to the stock market. In the beginning we will discuss the theme in-depth with a learning target in mind, this is where we will introduce new ideas and give members the skills they need to become successful investors. Following that we look at current stocks or assets that in some way incorporate the learning target. We then slowly transition into a more broad open discussion where members are encouraged to ask questions and bring to light their own stocks of interest.
In addition to this main meeting, there are small 15-30 minute meetings that we set up through our club group chat to go over current market trends and stocks we want to designate as “add money to plays.” These meetings aren’t mandatory and just allow for an open exchange of ideas. The club group chat is also another opportunity to stay informed on the market and potential stocks of interest. With more people analyzing the market together, members become better as a whole since we keep each other updated and analyze more stocks and trends than any one person could do alone.
We also have competitions with each other on the virtual trading platform How The Market Works. This allows for risk-free trading and encourages members to research and find undervalued stocks (To make these more competitive we sometimes have buy-ins and cash prizes for the winners).
Our main priority is that everyone feels comfortable asking questions and sharing ideas. We hope to provide students not only with a place to learn and grow their skill sets but a community that empowers young investors to reach their potential. Our mission is to provide a foundation in financial literacy and an ongoing conversation to keep members informed on the market week after week. We hope you consider joining!
