Certificate of Participation
The Investment Challenge started from 4th – 28th October, which is about 18 trading days. Most importantly, I can make use of it to test my stock trading mechanism, tactics to analyze a stock potential, market forecast techniques and financial management skills. As a result, I have proven some positive return for almost 90% of the stock that purchased by just applying defensive trading technique.
Are you wondering whether you should invest in bonds or stocks in 2011? I can’t tell you that you should load up on stocks and dump bonds this year.
First of all, there’s no evidence that any market analyst can predict the market returns consistently for each year. If you ask 1,000 market analysts, you can’t find anyone who gets it correct for each year. So, it’s not a good idea for you to load up on stocks or bonds based on what analysts think. We should know that all of them are just guessing.
You can go shopping online, read news online and communicate with someone online wherever you are. Even stock market trading can now be done virtually and this has made entering into a business much easier.
Virtual trading will look similar to the real stock market. It is designed to give you the latest news, updates, and graphs of the stock market without investing your money. Thus, playing a virtual stock market game is good practice before you invest your money in the real stock market. Besides, it may a great way for people to learn the value of money, investing and finance.
What’s more? It would be a fun game for you to play and is a way for anyone to play the stock market without any risk since the games can be played free of charges. Some of virtual stock market game offer you to play and gets the opportunity to win cash prizes, award gifts, as per monthly or yearly winners in the virtual stock market.
Since you are trying to earn money in the market so you need to watch the virtual trading every day. You need to listen to the news and see what could happen to your stock. Trust your knowledge to decide when to sell or hold.
