Wall Street Survivor offers an online gaming platform, where you can partake in a virtual model of the the stock market.
It is an easy and fun way to learn all about investing. It will also offer you much needed insight as to how the stock market works. The site not only allows you to invest a set amount of money into stocks, mutual funds and other investments of your choice, but also allows you to do market research, and provides you with simple but entertaining tutorials on everything from what are stocks, bonds, and mutual funds, to what is a P/E ratio. Moreover, you get to compete against your friends, and compare yourself to what they have done.
What is not to love? Put your business and economics skills to use in an effort to read what will happen on the markets around the world, while trash talking your friends for being in first place.
Read the attached PDF for directions on how to play, as well as answers to a number of questions most of you will have.
Below are several tutorials Wall Street Survivor has created to assist you. They are very, very useful to understanding how the stock market works. I therefore, advise you to watch most of them as it should assist you in making more informed decisions. (Click on the top left of the viewer to see the playlist of video titles.)
Additionally, I will go over a few investment strategies for you to make use of. If you want to take it further the website has fun online mini “Courses” available for you to work through. Other than that, happy gaming!! and may the best investor win!
