- Speculator: The Stock Trading Simulation — A “pure” investment game, with a simulated “live” investment environment that is similar to Wall Street Raider, but in this game, you are a middle-class small investor, starting off as a novice, with only $100,000 you have just inherited, instead of starting out as a billionaire (in Wall Street Raider). It’s a highly challenging game, since you are strictly an investor, not a billionaire who can take over companies and manipulate their stock prices or dominate whole industries. As such, in this simulation, you have to do good investment research, perusing information on the 1000+ companies, to sniff out undervalued stocks and bonds (including convertible bonds) in order to get ahead. The game is remarkably realistic, and will definitely hone your “real world” investing skills, as you learn (by doing) to read balance sheets and earnings reports and analyze stock and commodity charts.
Initially, as a novice trader in Speculator, you can only invest in stocks and bonds, and aren’t allowed to buy stocks on “margin” (borrowed money). But once you grow your portfolio up to $200,000 or more, your broker will upgrade you to a margin account; if you grow it to $300,000, you can do short sales; at $400,000 you will be eligible for put and call options trading; and at the expert level ($500,000 or above), you will be able to open a commodities trading account, to trade commodity futures and/or stock index futures, for potentially huge profits (or losses).
