I used to play this online stock market sim that was pretty cool. Actually, my friend Lynn and I would play it during the day at work, that’s basically how we got into online stock trading. I remember Sirius Satellite stock was going for around $0.18. It was up to like $4.00 before the economy imploded.

The game would give you $100,000 of fake money to play with. You would then basically just compete against everyone to see who could make the most money. It was a fun game.
Development ended on the game. It went the way of the Dodo. Since then I’ve been looking for a stock market sim to take its place. I even thought about creating my own (which I may still). However this stock market simulator seems to do everything I want to build into mine.
Not only do you compete against everyone in real time with fake money. You can also win prizes. I’m guessing the site can afford these prizes because it makes money from advertisements.
