Free investing games?


Recommended Posts

My son has asked me to teach him about investing and shares.  As he is under 20, this has caught me completely off guard and I wonder if anyone has a good 'free' tool (like the old share competitions some of the papers used to do) where you can build an imaginary portfolio and see how it performs?

Nah @wherebee

Give him £10k and be done with it. 

Nothing like having skin in the game.....

When you know the £big money is real your decisions are totally different. 
 

Nothing like seeing you’ve made a paper profit of more than you’d take home as salary in a year and letting it stay on the table ...... 

Unless you have massive ‘cojones’ like some - eg. that ‘big dog’ on here who will remain nameless....
