Stock Market Game & Prize

Update: I have also created a ‘test game’ - for you to try things out - pls read on for details.


You will be playing with the real data but virtual money.

It is same as playing the real stock market - except that you have nothing to lose. No entry fee.

Lets spice it up a little bit. The winner will get USD $25. I will send the money to you by some means, no matter what country you may be from.

Registering: Click here & register to enter the stock market game. Name of the game : Khazaana01 You will be given USD $10,000 of virtual money to play with. Whoever increases this amount the most wins. As soon as you enter, please send me an email at kirubakaran#gmail#com, giving me your name, user id, country and stuff like that…

Test Area: I have created a “test” game you may want to fool with - just to try things out. Click here for that. Name of the game : Chumma01 Of course, whatever you do here will not count towards the prize.

I will give you further instructions as we go. The main goal is to learn. So, you can gain a lot by active participation. Feel free to ask all your friends to join. Lets consider this game as a precursor to the next game, which I hope to have for the whole Q1 of 2006. That game will carry a bigger prize.

The contest ends by Dec 30, 2005. You should have sold all your positions by then and should have converted everything to cash. Open positions (unsold shares) will not be counted for calculating portfolio value.

You can see this blog for more info.
