Dying to cash in on Facebook’s ongoing stock market faceplant but don’t have the cash (or cojones)? You’re in luck! The brand new SuperStockJockey Facebook app — a virtual stock market game where you compete with friends and others — is running a free, risk-free Facebook Trading Challenge for cash and prizes May 29 - June 1!
With SuperStockJockey, anyone is free to virtually trade Facebook to his or her heart’s content. The game starts you with 100K in virtual SuperStockJockey dollars (SSJD) to get your all-Facebook-stock portfolio going. Then the trading’s up to you! Short the living daylights out of the Zuch. Milk everything you can out of every overly-optimistic uptick.
Be among the top ten traders for the week and you win — up to $500 in cash — no matter if Facebook tanks or not! Use your winnings to buy a pinstripe hoodie (we heard there’s a fire sale on them). Or simply enjoy some rough and tumble trading with absolutely no risk! All you have to do to play SuperStockJockey is to be on Facebook and add the app (think Farmville or Words With Friends). It’s fun, free and accessible to everyone. Shadenfreude never felt so good!
SuperStockJockey is the new stock market social game where you compete with friends. Available for play now as a Facebook app (in Beta), SuperStockJockey will soon be available on iOS devices like iPhones and iPads.
How does SuperStockJockey work? Simple. Players “purchase” and trade stocks in their virtual SuperStockJockey portfolios, competing with friends, whose own portfolios (and portfolio values) are visible in the game’s sidebar.
Players trade in real time in the big three US equities markets — NYSE, AMEX and NASDAQ. In the near future, SuperStockJockey will add other investment instruments, including currencies, futures and options to game play.
Getting started with SuperStockJockey is easy and free — anyone can begin building their own portfolio in minutes! You’ll compete with friends and peers at your level of experience, whether you’re a seasoned investment pro or a stock market novice.
SuperStockJockey is a great way for young people and inexperienced investors to learn about earning money in financial markets. It’s also a blast for investment pros who compete for bragging rights with colleagues. Above all, SuperStockJockey is a guilt-free way to act on your own financial instincts…and win!
