virtual shares

Registrations for the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) Sharemarket Game has opened. From a hypothetical $50,000 you get to create your own virtual share portfolio and play the sharemarket without it costing you a cent. There are also prizes for increasing the value of your virtual share portfolio. Note: The Game is open only to Australian residents.

There is plenty to read and do before trading commences Thursday 29 March. The Game runs for fourteen weeks and concludes Thursday 5 July.

It is not often you get to play with money that is not yours and the opportunity to win a prize 🙂 What fun. A sharemarket sandbox to play in.

  1. Unfortunately, just before the weekend holiday I received the news that the game would be delayed until later this year.

    ASX Sharemarket Game – 5 April 2007

    Hi jacqueline,
    On 21 March we advised you that ASX was suspending the ASX Public Game that you had registered for while we undertook extensive systems and capacity testing.
    We apologise again for the the disappointment caused by this delay.
    We also told you that we would keep you informed of developments.

    At this stage we anticipate running the Game in the second half of the year and there will only be one Public Game for 2007.
    We expect to be able to maintain your existing registration
    so that you do not need to re-register once the Game is ready to recommence.
    We will update you via email and on the ASX website when the Game dates are confirmed and we will also confirm registration arrangements.

    ASX Games Team.
