New Stock Market Competition

Well done to Fifth Year students, Darragh Cuddy and Shane Reilly, who have just set up a private game on a virtual stock exchange website. They are making this game open to all students in St. Gerald’s.

All you have to do is set up an account which only requires an e-mail address and join the game. It’s a pretty easy site to use. The game runs from tonight until New Year’s Eve and each player get $1,000,000 to start off with and can join anytime from now until then.

To take part in the competition:

Game ID:Castlebar  (this is case-sensitive)
Game Password: The password has been changed. Email vse [at] geralds [dot] ie to get the new password.

You should take part in the competition. It’s a great way to test your stock trading skills.

Go to the the VSE website and register and then join the game.

I have joined the game myself. I am trading under the name buffet101.

    What a mess! I was almost €20,000 up on freddie mac at 6.30, prompting me to invest heavily and suddenly at just before seven the banking market plummeted and i ended up losing over $150,000. Managed to sut my losses and sell everything and ended up with a 17% loss for the day. Not the best start.

    This is somewhat competitive but frustrating.
    Its a great application though, i feel determined to get ahead of buffet-101 in profit for a laugh.
    The only set back i have had so far is wal-mart, i didn’t research it so its my own set back, however, its not over till its over.

    Good luck lads

    The poor run for mining stocks continues. RTP and BHP both down again today. Financial stocks continue to recover. Good to see the numbers joining the game.

    not a very good market,all my shares are looseing value especially aib gone down 40000,i bought them to late!!!it might pick up hopefully!!!

    Any chance of AIB recovering by December or should I seel up now?!!!!

  11. 11 BullMarket1992 October 7, 2008 at 10:00 pm

    SELL AIB is the order of the day I think as i can’t see an increase in profits for the forseeable future. I’m definetely staying away from financials fo the next few weeks, way to volatile. Good to see gas prices on the way up as well as a small recovery in mining stocks.

  12. 12 daragh October 10, 2008 at 10:38 pm

    theres no point selling aib just yet, i mean they have plunged in value over the past few days the only way is up.
    your bound to get a much better price between now and then

    Ya I’ve no doubt AIB’s share price will rise, its more or less inevitable, but I’m looking at this competition, will AIB increase before New Years Eve? Only time will tell, but at the moment there isn’t much confidence in financial institutions. Hopefully this will soon change.

    Google is turning out to be the winner. Great stock.

    Tip: Buy Bank of Ireland shares now. They are down to around €3, having been at €18 a few months ago. I’ve bought a few thousand.
