After a successful Fall Session, Regina Angelorum’s Stock Market Club is excited to announce its Spring Session.

The Spring Session will run on Tuesdays from February 8th to April 12th for 6th - 8th graders. The club will be hosted after school from 3:15pm-4pm by Mr. Maurer.

“Aside from having an opportunity to learn about the stock market, students will learn trading and investing techniques that will last a lifetime.” -Mr. Maurer

RAA’s Stock Market Club is a chance for students to learn about investing and trading while putting their classroom math skills to use in this real world experience.

This is a competitive club session. Meaning, students will participate in a statewide competition as a part of The Stock Market Game’s PA division.

Students can expect to learn basic measures of relative value like Price to Earnings ratios and how to spread investment risk while saving on fees by investing in exchange traded funds. They also learn the basics of Japanese candlestick charting and Elliot Waves (Fibonacci retracement).

It can seem like a lot to learn in a short period of time; however we’ve been overjoyed with the students’ growth over the course of the club. RAA also encourages students' continuous involvement in the club by offering the competitive sessions three times throughout the year: Fall, Spring, and Summer.

It’s been rewarding to see the students so engaged and excited over this project based learning. In the past, they’ve lit up with pride to find themselves ranked among many middle school and high school teams in our state as they manage their pretend $100,000.

RAA is the 5th school at which Mr. Maurer has run such a club. He worked at a few hedge funds in the past and enjoys sharing his passion for investing, trading, and especially stock charts

“Having worked for hedge funds in the past, I learned a few tricks, especially about stock charts. I hope to inspire a passion and a confidence in the students, so that they will someday be able to invest well.” -Mr. Maurer

Don’t wait to register for this upcoming Spring Session; enrollment is limited to 10 students.

Between RAA’s classical curriculum, the catholic faith it nurtures, and the academic clubs it offers, it’s no wonder the students leave prepared for graduation day and to face what the real world will bring.
