Since the economy and everything took a shit, lets see how much money we can make.

Basically:

1. You are given $100,000 (fake money). You may spend all or part of it. The remainder of the money will be left in a 'savings' account. In addition, you will be given a charge account (think of it as a credit card) good for an additional $50,000. This money will have to be paid back at some point.

2. The website is called "Stocks Quest" - http://investsmart.coe.uga.edu

3. Login/register as an individual player and follow the steps.

4. Once logged in, click "Join a Contest". Type in:
Group Name: BF2S2
Password: bf2s

5. Go back to the main page

6. Click on "BF2S" on the left. (Make sure you do this, if you don't you won't be in the group game)

7. Follow the directions and begin trading! Good luck to everyone. The game will end exactly a year from now.

I won't do it, because id automatically win. I'll give a chance for others.

I played fantasy in september/october and i picked Morgan Stanley when it went up 89% one day. Then MER when it went from 12-28 in 4 days. In all I went from 20k to 120k in about a month.

You can spend another $50,000 on margin if you want.

No I made the game so you can buy and sell whenever because of the different time zones. You do have to wait a day to sell a stock once you buy it

My friends play a similar thing for their economics class. I am telling everyone to invest in Activision.

For Five reasons. I'd like to to guess as to which.

I saw a OTC go up 101,000% once.

10 bucks and i'd be retired.

Already in a Northern Ireland championship for this. Made around £3000 (fake) so far from £100000 initial investments, it gets quite addictive.
