It's as American as Apple Pie. Wall Street Magnate simulation.

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, July 4, 2013

It’s as American as apple pie.  Investing in stocks.  A new simulation game on the Web.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   Wall Street Magnate is the product of a couple of buddies who’ve worked in and around Wall Street.   It’s a Web based stock simulation game…where everything is pretty real….except the money.   Co-founder Lew Schlossberg…

“Wall Street Magnate is a fantasy trading community, really the first of its kind.  The idea was to create a trading simulation that was as easy, as fun and as social as possible.  So we arranged for the sign up to take less than 20 seconds and the sign up is very similar to other social networking sites where it just requires your name, password and email address and you’re in.  And then after that, you’re able to trade, buy and sell any stocks within 30 seconds.  You start out with a hundred thousand dollars in simulated cash.”

It’s free.   You can use it to learn or even play with groups of people and compete.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
