Doyle Stock Trading Competition

Utilizing the Center’s stock-trading capabilities aggressively are University of Scranton students who participate in the annual James C. Doyle ’66 Stock Trading Competition.  Created in memory of Mr. Doyle, a loyal alumnus of the University and respected financial advisor, and funded by contributions from his family and friends, the competition encourages students to understand and participate in the workings of the stock market.  Using a virtual stock-exchange platform and brokerage accounts provided by Market Watch, student competitors began their trading activity in mid-October with virtual accounts valued at $100,000.  On a weekly basis, they submit their account statements, listing trading dates, transactions and balances to the competition coordinator.  The student with the largest balance at the close of the market on April 15 receives a cash award.
