The ASX Share Market Game

The ASX usually runs an online share market game twice each year for about 16 weeks. You can read about the game on the ASX website. Registration is quick and easy, and they won't send you junk mail (I first registered many years ago and I don't receive junk mail from the ASX).

The ASX Sharemarket Game is a great way to test out some investing / trading ideas, and to get a good feel for how the market works. It is a very realistic way to safely play the market and see if you can be profitable. In the game you get $50,000 of fantasy money to trade in a replica environment of the real share market. Make sure to visit the ASX Game website for details.

For Game#1 in 2019, there were 228 stocks available for you to purchase and trade in the game. You can see the list and download a CSV file of the stocks from the ASX website.

Are you ready to play this game, and
test out your strategy to see how good it is?

Read more "About the ASX Share Market game" on the ASX website. The game is a great no-risk way to test out your own strategies.
Brainy's TIPs for the game:- (a) Avoid buying a stock that is NOT in a rising trend. To do otherwise is speculating, and wishing that it will rise. (b) In order to do well in the market at most times, it is important to be vigilant with money management, and review each position at least once or twice each week, and quit losers quickly (based on your pre-defined exit strategy. Don't forget it is easy to spot the best performers in any recent time period with good software (such as BullCharts).
This game is a great opportunity to practise in the market without risking any real money. Not sure how the game works? You can see some tips for the game here in the Toolbox. Also see game information, and the game rules.

The published materials (and one unpublished submission)

Robert's submitted materials are listed here, where you can view the online published articles, and in some cases some more details here in Brainy's Share Market Toolbox.

  • September 2016 - Consumer Staple Stocks 
    The September 2016 edition of the ASX Investor Update email includes an article about utilising  technical analysis to consider whether consumer staple stocks (in particular Woolworths, Wesfarmers and Metcash) should be a portfolio staple. The discussion inludes consideration of the Consumer Staples sector (XSJ). See Robert's extra material and larger price charts on this special web page. Also see Robert's published article at the ASX web site, and the full September 2016 edition of the Investor Update email. 
  • March 2016 - Telecom Stocks 
    The March 2016 edition of the ASX Investor Update email includes an article about utilisingtechnical analysis to consider investing in telecom stocks. It looks at the price chart of Telstra, discusses the usefulness of candlestick charts, and compares Telstra's price performance to that of three of its peers and the relevant sector index. There is also a discussion on Stock Liquidity. See Robert's published article at the ASX web site, and the of the Investor Update email. Also see Robert's extra (unpublished) material for the newsletter and larger price charts on this special web page.
  • May 2014 - The Big Banks (publication declined by the ASX)
    Robert was invited to submit an article for publication in the May 2014 edition of the ASX Investor Update email newsletter. However, the submitted article was pulled at the last minute, apparently as it included some material that the ASX could not agree to (regarding dividend stripping). The material was researched and written, and the price charts prepared, so let's not waste it - it's here for you to see.
