Also, I set the game to begin on March 1 so there would be time to get people signed up and do some research on stocks.

did this back in high school until they made people start paying
I was happy to see that VSE was free again as well.

Anything (stocks, not futures, or equities) traded in the NYSE, NASDAQ, AMEX, etc are able to be traded. At least I'm pretty sure. Read the rules to make sure.

Akumas, you might google for "Stock market strategies" or something similar to get some basics. I've got my own little strategy. I'll consider sharing depending on how I do. It's certainly not a strategy I'd use with actual money in the market, that's for sure.

Awesome! I was beginning to wonder if we'd have enough people to make it interesting. Looking forward to a great competition! Do your research and place any orders you want now and they will be executed at market open on Monday (1430 Zulu). Bear in mind, there is about a 15 min delay between order placement and execution/confirmation.
Best of luck to all, I know I'll need it!

I might give it a try, I was hoping you could trade the TSX though.
