Registration for the game has opened today.
The game runs from 27 February - 11 June
Premise (copied from the last time I started a thread on this):
You're given a certain amount of play money (last semester it
was $50,000) to invest in real-time stocks on the Australian Securities
Exchange. At the end of the semester the person with the highest value
of their collection of stocks wins a small prize of real money (this
semester it's $3,000).
IMHO the actual chances of winning are zip
- I'm sure that there are experienced traders playing the game.
However it's a good way to learn the risks and rewards of the stock
market without actually taking the plunge.
...and it's fun.
I'm already registered, and I'm again playing as "The Foxaroo." Hopefully this time I'll be able to give updates of my progress on time each week.
