Share Trading Game Introduction

Most experts will tell you that paper trading is a fantastic way to learn how to invest in shares, to test out new techniques or systems before trading on the "live market". The time spent is well worth it! Beginners usually lose a lot of money on share trading basics such as trading too frequently and not thinking about brokerage costs. It's best to familiarise yourself and sharpen your skills before trading on the live market.

StockWatch Trading is a learning tool that helps facilitate this. StockWatch Trading simulates the share market on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX). Our aim is to make trading on the market as close to the real thing as possible, without the risk of losing any of your own money. We want to make investing fun and exciting, while giving you the opportunity to learn through testing and interactions with other share investors like yourself.

Best of all, Its FREE!
