    Stock Investment Simulator Game

    http://simulator.investopedia.com/

    I guess it was inevitable, what with fantasy football, baseball, and hockey, that we should have 'fantasy daytrader'. Anyone interested in starting a game?

    Remember to buy plenty of Haliburton and Exxon.

    I'd love to. Considering my experience owning 100 shares of Sirius, I'd probably be teh losar.

    Sounds nice... I hear that Enron stocks are a very profitable investment...

    So what's the name of the Cyburbia game? or do we need to create one?

    I would do this... but I think I would get frustrated if I bought a stock in the game and it took off, but I didn't buy it real life. My portfolio is down a bit today... it's been quite a rollercoaster lately, but I'm still doing good.

    A little bump for great justice... and for an instance to whine for the falling stocks... I lost quite a lot of fake money!

    Also... good to see that at least another Cyburbian joined the game I started... now start buying stocks michiganplanner!

    Hey! I'm researching my picks.
    I'd be more apathetic if I weren't so lethargic.

    I joined up, but do not know what to buy, how to buy and really where I am.
    You get all squeezed up inside/Like the days were carved in stone/You get all wired up inside/And it's bad to be alone

    You can go out, you can take a ride/And when you get out on your own/You get all smoothed out inside/And it's good to be alone

    well once you create your account in the game... join the Cyburbian Game (search for cyburbia), the password is posted above...

    What to buy? Google stocks haven't let me down yet.... pretty much everything else is in red numbers for the last few days... what's going on in the Dow and Nasdaq? How to buy? you go to Trade Stocks, enter or search for the symbol for the stock you want to buy (i.e. Google is GOOG, Wal-Mart is WMT), the quantity you want to buy, and then buy... You'll get ask about "your call" or something... like comments, I skip them...
