Ahmad Rusdiansyah revealed the presence of the IDX Investment Gallery at ITS is an encouragement for ITS students to learn directly to become a businessman. Students will directly participate in the investment world of the Indonesia Stock Exchange. “They will learn to be young investors in the stock market,” said the man who often called Doddy.

This Industrial Engineering lecturer also revealed that the IDX Investment Gallery presence is as a means for students to learn literacy and education about the capital market. Students will know directly about stocks, bonds, and they will learn as young investors. “With the money of Rp 100,000 as stock, they can become investors for companies in IDX,” he said.

Besides, Doddy continued, new challenges for the world today are analytic data or scientific data and big data. The stock market is the biggest source of big data. The data in the stock market will move every second, this is something that must be studied, analyzed, and predicted. “ITS students will learn to analyze the stock market well directly,” he said.

By participated directly, according to Doddy, students will find out which company stocks are favorite, bullish stocks (stocks that move up in a certain time) and bearish stocks (stocks that move down in a certain time). The students will also know about which stocks are classified as blue-chip, which is the best-selling stocks. “Not only as a stock observer but also as an investor,” he added.

Another benefit is that students will be more interested and curious about the business world so that the entrepreneurial spirit will arise well. Students who come not only just invest, but there will be a simulation program on the stock market.

With this simulation program, students will learn and try when they can get capital gain (income got from the sale of stock assets) and capital loss (losses got from the difference between the purchase price and the selling price of shares). “Hopefully, this knowledge is the basis and provision of students to deal with the world trade war,” he concluded.
