The ASX Share Market Game
The ASX usually runs an online
share market game twice each year for about 16 weeks. You can read about the game on the ASX website.
Registration is quick and easy, and they won't send you junk
mail (I first registered many years ago and I don't receive junk
mail from the ASX).
The ASX Sharemarket Game is a great
way to test out some investing / trading ideas, and to get a
good feel for how the market works. It is a very realistic way
to safely play the market and see if you can be profitable. In
the game you get $50,000 of fantasy money to trade in a replica
environment of the real share market. Make sure to visit the ASX
Game website for details.
For Game#1 in 2019, there were 228
stocks available for you to purchase and trade in the game. You
can see the list and download a CSV file of the stocks from the
ready to play this game, and
test out your strategy to see how good it is?
Read more "About the ASX Share Market game" on
the ASX website. The game is a great no-risk way to test
out your own strategies.
Brainy's TIPs for the game:- (a) Avoid buying a
stock that is NOT in a rising trend. To do otherwise is
speculating, and wishing that it will rise. (b) In order to do
well in the market at most times, it is important to be vigilant
with money management, and review each position at least once or
twice each week, and quit losers quickly (based on your
pre-defined exit strategy. Don't forget it is easy to
spot the best performers in any recent time period with good
software (such as BullCharts).
This game is a great opportunity to practise in the market
without risking any real money. Not sure how the game works? You
can see some tips for the game here in the Toolbox.

- May 2014 - The Big Banks
(publication declined by the ASX)
Robert was invited to submit an article for publication in the
May 2014 edition of the ASX
Investor Update email newsletter. However, the
submitted article was pulled at the last minute, apparently as
it included some material that the ASX could not agree to
(regarding dividend stripping). The material was researched
and written, and the price charts prepared, so let's not waste
it - it's
for you to see.
