I really enjoyed being able to actively participate in the stock market without the stress of real financial risk.
My involvement in Q.I.F.L., specifically the Investopedia stock challenge, has taught me a lot about analyzing market trends and managing my portfolio in order to make profitable transactions at the right time.
I hope that I can use the skills that I’ve learned in future personal investments.
