Today the time has come: The OÖN stock market game in cooperation with Raiffeisen Oberösterreich is going into its 21st edition. You can register at any time on oon-boersespiel.at.
How does securities trading work? When should you buy or sell a stock? What role do politicians and central banks play? In the stock market game, the participants can deal with questions like these. They get to know and understand the world of international financial markets and at the same time have the chance to win great prizes.
Each participant receives a fictitious starting capital of 50,000 euros. By the end of March 22, whoever has made the highest profit by buying and selling securities cleverly and with foresight can call themselves the winner of the stock market game.
The main prize is a new Citroen C3, provided by Autowelt Linz and Kepler-Fonds KAG. Second place gets certificate vouchers and a wellness holiday from Raiffeisen Certificates, third place gets fund vouchers from Schroders and tickets for the concert series “Klassik am Dom”, fourth place gets a holiday in Austria from Reisewelt and fifth place gets shopping vouchers from City Shopping Linz.
This year, too, there are separate ratings for students and school classes. Here you can win an e-mountain bike, an e-scooter and an Apple Watch as well as tickets for a LASK home game in the Raiffeisen Arena, a school jump in the Jump Dome Linz and a private cinema screening at Star Movie. The best stock market players from six Upper Austrian regions are awarded at the “Regions Rally”. Fund vouchers from Kepler-Fonds KAG await the winners of the respective regions.
