The (Mock) Exchange

April 10, 2010 -- From Sean Rasmussen, a reader from Montreal, who is affiliated with the site.

Most Stock Market simulators use real world stocks; as such, the virtual trader cannot affect the price of the shares. The (Mock) Exchange – which I’ve made – is a completely closed system, so a more realistic simulator; with each trade, you can potentially influence the share price. It’s entirely free and there’s even an iPhone app so you can track the activity on the run. We hope you enjoy it.

Rescue The Market

December 30, 2008 -- From Dan, a reader from Toronto, Ontario, who is affiliated with the site.

Rescue The Market is a trivia game where correct or incorrect answers influence a virtual stock market. When users answer questions correctly the market goes up, but if you answer incorrectly it will go down. The stats are updated in real time and the virtual markets performance is then compared to the Dow Jones, thus making the game more fun and interesting to play. It is available for free and suitable for kids 9 or up. The trivia questions are strictly business related and teach as you play along. Try it out and test your market knowledge!

Stock Market Challenge

June 3, 2008 -- From Mark B., a reader, from Jerusalem, Israel, who is affiliated with the site.

The Stock Market Challenge is an opportunity for stock market beginners or intermediates to simulate playing the stock market to learn the ropes and test their theories, while never risking a cent of their own money! The game is free and fun too.
