Four teams of Business students have made it through to the semi-final of the 2016 Student Investor Challenge. More than 10,000 teams took part in the first stage of the competition with only 500 teams progressing to the semi-final which takes place online over four weeks across February and March. Each week, the teams will need to correctly predict the closing price of certain assets by the end of trading on Friday the same week. Points are awarded on how accurate the prediction is and how long it has been predicted for. The eight best performing semi-finalists will go through to the live national final in April.
