Game to help you learn investing: Battle for Wall Street

Boot Camp feature for Tuesday, August 18, 2015

A game to help you learn how to invest.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    Investing your money is serious business, but learning how to do can be fun.   Ronin Game Studios has created Battle for Wall Street…designed for iOS and Android phones and tablets.  Co-founder Stephen Kalayjian…

“I feel that people are intimidated with the stock market.  You go through high school and so many people who go through college have found even bigger struggles.  But, however, the stock market should not be intimidating in any way, shape or form.  It took us about 15, 16 months to design this, to make the game really user friendly.  And I really feel that there’s a significant part that helps on the education with this.”

The game uses a trading platform called KnowVera…and is a collaboration between a group of day traders and mobile game developers.   You can download Battle for Wall Street for free.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
