Hi everyone we are in week at the halfway point of the inaugural Arizona Phi Beta Lambda “How the Market Works” stock market challenge. Jordan Akana from NAU, is running away with the competition, using a  strategy similar to  “day trading”

According Mr. Seth’s  article “10 Steps To  Becoming A Day Trader, “ A day trader actively buys and sells securities, often multiple times during the day, but without carrying any open positions to the next day. All buy/sell positions taken during a trading day are squared-off on the same day before the market closes”. (Seth)

I want to share this quote from John Clifton “Jack” Bogle. He is an American investor, business magnate, and philanthropist. He is the founder and retired chief executive of The Vanguard Group

“Your success in investing will depend, in part, on your character and guts, and in part on your ability to realize at the height of ebullience and the depth of despair alike, that this too shall pass.” – John Bogle

Many of you have already noticed the volatility of the stock market. My wish is that your learning something from this competition that you can benefit from in your future.
