Stock Market Game™

SMG Logo

The SIFMA Foundation's acclaimed Stock Market Game™ program is an online simulation of the global capital markets that engages students grades 4-12 in the world of economics, investing and personal finance, and prepares them for financially independent futures. More than 600,000 students take part every school year across all 50 states. The Stock Market Game has reached 16 million students since its inception in 1977.

An independent study by Learning Point Associates found students who participated in the SMG program scored significantly higher on mathematics and financial literacy tests than their peers who did not. They also found that teachers who taught SMG reported the program motivated them to better plan for their future and to engage in financial planning, research, and use of investment products and services.
