Sharemarket Game advertisement

If you are thinking about trading but not quite ready to step in yet, the Sharemarket Game is a great way to:

• develop your knowledge of the sharemarket
• test your investment strategies
• learn to keep track of a share portfolio
• trade risk free
• win some great prizes

You are given a hypothetical $50,000 to trade for approximately 3 months and you have the challenge set before you to see if you can make that $50,000 grow. 

The Game gives you the chance to buy and sell shares in 100 companies listed on the sharemarket.  It simulates real sharemarket conditions, uses live prices, and brokerage is charged on each trade.  Best of all, the Game gives you the chance to trade without putting your own money on the line.

This is a great opportunity to practice your trading and if you are successful you may win one of the following prizes. 

National prize:  $5000 Westpac Broking Account
State prizes: First - $1000, Second - $500, Third - $250

Play the Game and have fun, whether you are a seasoned investor or absolute beginner. Entry is Free!

How the Game works

  • Buy and sell shares in any of the nominated  ASX listed companies
  • Place orders to buy or sell shares any time. Orders will be executed when the real sharemarket is open (10 am to 4 pm)
  • “At market” orders will be filled using the next available price in the real sharemarket. You can also place “at limit” orders (you set the price)
  • Orders will either be filled or partially filled depending on the quantity of shares available in the real sharemarket
