“A public outcry usually masks a private obsession.” – Eric Schlosser
The Finance and Investment society of Shaheed Bhagat Singh College, University of Delhi, organized 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 of Second year and co-head Devanshu Choudhary of First year, B.com. (Hons) students of the college, the magnificent event had one of the largest turnouts of the year.
A zealous passion 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 Rs. 5, 000 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 Rs. 10, 000.
Other prizes which amounted up to Rs. 30, 000 included Smash Vouchers, T.I.M.E. vouchers, and best-selling novels. The event was sponsored by our Education partner – T.I.M.E., our media partners- DU Beat and University Express and our Gaming Partner- Smash.
