Stock trading game

Posted to Statistical Visualization  |  Tags: , ,  |  Nathan Yau

Bloomberg Business has an interesting stock trading game with a simple premise. A time series line starts at the beginning of a stock’s life and runs its course all the while you buy and sell trying to profit.

Click and hold the mouse button to buy, and release to sell. The key is to click when the stock price is low and to release when it’s high. Of course, this is when uncertainty comes into play and is what makes the game fun.
