Games about how to trade options


Investing isnt a game, but theres no better way to learn how to use online investing tools. Dont go into these games with the intention of winning.

I will provide here a few links to free online games, which are useful to learn how to trade options and shares. I can remember, that I was reading here in this forum in a thread, that somebody asked about such games. Always had it in my mind and this is what I found.

The best way to approach these sites is with the goal of learning more about the tools and your research abilities.
