Join in a fun & teaching investing simulator game.

Long story short, I am interested in investing.
If you ask me what I know about investing my answer will be: no clue, but you shall be able to make ~8% a year, which is huge in a long-term run!

Me & Koshy are having a deal, as I am helping him with wowmod, he is guiding me towards the great world of Investing!

As our first step, I, Pandalina & Koshy are going to start a new stocks market simulator game starting this Saturday (January 18th 2014).

It is going to be completely absolutely newbie game, might not be as exciting as wowmod but shall be teaching and even fun.


The more people, the more fun, so I am inviting everyone from wowmod community to join us. Plus Koshy as an expert will be giving invaluable tips you will hardly get anywhere else for free!




1. Register on investopedia.com

2. Join our game:
Game Name: WoWmod Community and Friends
Password: letsplaywow

3. Wait for Saturday


Below is a simple screenshot instruction on how to join our game:

I'm in, prepare to get demolished :P


On a side not even if you don't want to invest a lot of money playing around with bitcoins on the exchanges will give you a good understanding of trading/day trading, as all the usual terms such as: trends, shorting, long, bullish, bearish, credit swaps, margin, leverage and so on will be used and you'll use them every day.
(For example i'm offering credit swaps at 0.5% a day and got a 4:1 leveraged long on several bitcoins)

BTW, koshy what are you credentials or what is your experience with day trading? (just curious)

investopedia is that your webpage, I know that page , must be worth something


Problem with your idea is, in germany for example I know at least two platforms who doing exactly the same and I think both have all assets and shares etc.. you can bet on. On one of them the best trader is rewarded with a porsche boxter

I dont see your point stabby, investopedia is a well known site and I doubt koshy is the owner lol.
There is no problem? I think the idea is just to have a small competition/game to see who is the best and learn more about investing.

what an excuse.
It takes around 20 minutes to think in your head what company u'd like to invest into, buy their stocks, and wait for a month to see the results.
