Fantasy Stock Trading Game Takes the Fear Out of Investing in a Tough Economy(May 16, 2012)
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/16/12 -- Stockpools.com is the brainchild of co-founder Neil Currie, a Vancouver business man who put together a fantasy sports pool for stocks. It's free, there's no risk, you can learn something about the stock market, and you can win real money.
Each week Stockpools gives away a thousand dollars to the top performing fantasy investor, however this week one of Stockpools' clients, Prophecy Platinum (TSX VENTURE:NKL), is giving away a solid pure 1oz platinum coin valued at over 15 hundred dollars.
The winner of the platinum coin will be announced and awarded Friday, May 18th at Stockpools head office, 1pm Pacific time.
"We really wanted to help people understand that even in this troubled economy, one can still learn about the stock market," says Currie, "and understand the risks and rewards and that it isn't about losing your shirt or your house...we want to make it fun."
Stockpools.com deals primarily with metal and mineral stocks but each user does have the ability to create pools in any sector as long as the companies are publically traded in North America.
"Our objective is simply to educate and the players about the clients and provide a unique experience for the user," ads Currie, "and if we create real investors, then we've done something to help the economy."
