Selling High

Let's Pretend

Invest online for fun (no cash required).

Ever get the urge to plunk down a wad of cash on a few "hunch" stocks just to see what would happen? Well, now you can join the fray at no risk--all for fun.

Since last December, the Fantasy Stock Market site (http://www.fantasystockmarket.com) has let visitors invest for free an imaginary $100,000 in stocks from the major exchanges. A new game starts at the beginning of each month, though you can join at any time.

Cyber investors keep coming back--the number of hits reached 80,000 per day in April. If nothing else, it's a fun way for beginners to learn about investing--and for would-be tycoons to learn the vagaries of risk and reward.
