Playing with Money

Posted on March 5, 2009. Filed under: Money | Tags: , , |

I love the stock market.  All the ups and downs, wild excitement, gambling with huge amounts of money – it’s great.  Unfortunately, I don’t have huge amounts of money, or even small amounts, to spend on such a risky business.  Thankfully I found UpDown.  It is a site that gives you a pretend portfolio of $1million to invest, and it keeps track of real time stock prices so you can see how you would be doing if it was real money – for free.  They pay dividends when the stocks pay dividends, they charge a fee per trade, the whole bit.  And if you beat the market, you actually earn a little cash.  Now, I beat the market by about 5% this month, and I only earned $.01, so you’re not going to get rich doing this, even if you are crazy good at it, but it is still fun.  So if you are like me and enjoy playing with money but can’t afford to do it for real, go try it!
