For the sixth successive year, the Cairo University’s Scientific committee successfully carried out its 2012 Educational Stock Market Simulation (SMS 2012) with students from 4 universities (Cairo, Ain Sahms, Helwan and 6th of October universities) taking part.

The program was divided into two sections: the first was a series of preparatory lectures while the second was the simulation.

A chain of illustrative lectures on the fundamentals and workings of stock market and share trading was provided by a group of top-notch experts from HC Securities & Investment, allowing participants to arrive at a profound understanding of financial and technical analysis, investment funds, online trading as well as the basics of stock market at large.

The lectures largely contributed to lay a strong foundation of understanding prior to running the simulation itself.

With a 90-member team of organizers from academic, organizational and human resources committees, 400 students from diverse majors and academic years benefited from the program.
