St. Ignatius High School students Robert Rutkowski and Daniel Champoux were the February team of the month winners in this school year’s Saxon Investment Club program.
Their team, “Marxists” had the highest return (11.92 percent) for the month of February among participating schools in the extra-curricular program that allows students to gain practical insights into investing, money, the stock market, stock trends, and starting and running a business.
According to a press release, students trade with demo accounts set up by OneTRADEx, whose trading platform is built on software that operates in real time and produces reports of investing activities. OneTRADEx also awards the monthly prizes to top performers.
The Saxon Investment Club program ran from October 2016 to March 2017, when the winning team was selected based on the highest net value of the investments made. The prize ceremony was hosted at St. Ignatius on April 5.
