“A public outcry usually masks a private obsession.” – Eric Schlosser
The Finance and Investment society of Shaheed Bhagat Singh College, University of Delhi, organised a traditional stock market event, ‘The Wolf of Dalal Street’ on 24th October 2016.
The event consisted of two rounds, first, a business awareness quiz followed by an open outcry mock stock where participants were able to seize the buzz and thrill of real time trading.
Guided by the hard-work and efforts of the Event Head, Shubham Surana (2nd year) and co-head Devanshu Choudhary (first year), b.com. honours students of the college, the magnificent event had one of the largest turnouts of the year.
Zealous for the stock markets drove the registrations to 200+ students out of which 16 teams made it to the second round. Participants were required to apply their dexterity and comprehension to decipher the complex trading game to win the challenge.
Students from Shaheed Bhagat Singh College were the first runner ups who won a cash prize of five thousand rupees and the team that had the best hand at market conditions was from Sri Guru Gobind Singh College of Commerce and won a cash prize of ten thousand rupees.
Other prizes which amounted upto rupees thirty thousand included Smash Vouchers, T.I.M.E. vouchers, best selling novels.
