The UG Marketwatch Virtual-Stock game!
 
So here's the deal; I just made an account on Marketwatch.com to play their virtual stocks game. I just made a room, I'll post the information below. You'll start out with nothing in your portfolio, and a set amount of money. The stock values are updated according to the real-life amounts, and you can 'buy' stock in REAL companies at their REAL values at REAL time. The only difference between this game and buying actual stock is that you don't actually pay for the shares and you can't make profit/debt off it.

URL is here.

The game won't start until next Monday(10/8/12) to give people a chance to join and research their potential stocks and lasts until a month from then(10/8/12). Being as that I don't know stocks very well, I'm just leaving the game settings at the default values.

You do have to make an account, but it's free and just takes a few minutes. Post your name here and I'll compile a list of usernames here and there.

GAME OVER

Congrats to This Guy, for winning $143,839.12 over his initial amount. Also congrats to Jack Jonny McJonJones for losing $38,746.07 from the initial $100,000. Anyone opposed to a new game? Maybe a longer one?

Trowzaa 10-01-2012 05:13 PM

This sounds quite interesting actually. It sounds like it'd be fun with a lot of people.

Kensai 10-01-2012 05:15 PM

Kinda does sound interesting. I think I'll create an account later.

Bob_Sacamano 10-01-2012 05:16 PM

Sounds pretty cool although I know absolutely nothing about stocks. I'm expecting you guys to give us "scoops", like flying shoes or something so we can buy the virtual internet with our virtual money.

I have no idea what I just signed up for. Someone at some point this week needs to explain this tomfoolery in simple terms.

ErikLensherr 10-01-2012 06:27 PM

You start with $100K. You play a virtual stock market, updated real time, as if you were investing real money. Whoever has the most money wins.

Momentosis 10-01-2012 07:23 PM

No clue as to what I'm doing but I expect to win.

Bob_Sacamano 10-01-2012 07:32 PM

This thread's going to make me watch that CNN show with the guy who yells a lot.

Bass Beast 10-01-2012 07:34 PM

GoxGetterxGuy 10-01-2012 07:36 PM

I'm going to lose my money so quickly.
