Please Note: Instructions for signing up for the ASX Sharemarket Game, which begins on August 2nd can be found below.
Our October meeting commenced with a Skype link to Eric Berzkalns in Daylesford to review the investment performances of the 13 participants in the current ASX Sharemarket Game. Peter Ferguson and Andrew Diver are sharing the lead, with Eric Berzkalns not too far behind. These positions are expected to switch back and forth before the game ends on November 14th, given the current turbulent state of the Australian Sharemarket. Non-participant Club members are encouraged to join our Group and this well-run Sharemarket Game.
Before the Skype session ended, Eric undertook an interesting, and at times, humorous presentation on the subject of Money. Thanks again to Eric for his presentations of the ASX Sharemarket Game data, which contributes greatly to the success of our Group’s meetings, as well as his detailed research, and clever and interesting presentations on various investment-related subjects.
After morning tea, an active discussion and debate took place on how recent state and local government changes, promises, and the forthcoming Victorian state and federal elections will influence share price movements among listed stocks as they undergo reassessment by our members and the general investment public. In all, another interesting and successful meeting.
At our November meeting, we will look at the cost of “Food Miles (or Kilometres) in our lives”. Members are asked to search supermarket shelves during the month, and the person who brings the item that has travelled the greatest distance will win!
