NZSA Share Games

Free for all NZSA members and their families. We will be running another share game later in the year. If you are interested in playing email and we will contact you when registrations open.

The rules of the game are pretty simple - it is designed to mimic a real life investing micro investing platform. You get $10,000 of virtual cash and you can use it to "buy" and "sell" shares listed on major exchanges in Australia, New Zealand, US, Canada and UK - thats over 17,000 listed shares now and we may add other exchanges along the way! Each buy or sell will cost you 0.3% of the buy/sell amount in virtual cash for brokerage and net dividends will be credited to your virtual cash account on their payment date. You can do nothing and leave it all as cash, buy an index, trade like a maniac, buy GameStop, or any strategy you like. There are no limits other than the amount of virtual cash you have left to play with and it will be fascinating to see which strategies work the best.

To make it easy to use we provide a personal home page where you virtually buy and sell shares and the excellent people at Sharesight have provided unlimited free portfolios which the Share Game uses to track the performance of each portfolio - they can do it much better than we can! Your home page has a link to your portfolio in Sharesight so you can use Sharesight to monitor and report on it and use the Share Checker for investments you are considering. Your home page also has a link to the Leaderboard which shows how all the portfolios are doing - don't worry we don't show names, just non de plumes or numbers!
