BOOM! The Player with the best performance wins!
The Fun… Making Money! It’s America’s favorite pastime.
The Challenge: Can you turn 50K into 1 Million? A Million into a Billion?
The Question: Can you out-invest your friends?
The Lesson: How history and events affect the market.
The Numbers: Pay attention to the data, it makes a difference
