WallStreetSurvivor.com named Best Stock Market Game by Mashable.com
Stock-Trak’s WallStreetSurvivor.com was named the best free stock market game website for learning stock market strategy by Mashable.com. In the same ranking, Mashable also ranked Stock-Trak’s HowTheMarketWorks.com as the second best free stock market game website.
Mashable.com is the top news source for social and digital media, technology and web culture, garnering over 30 million pageviews a month and rated 241 by Alexa.com. PC Magazine also named it in their “Top 100 Undiscovered Websites” of 2007.
“We are very pleased that the web community has recognized what we have known all along, that our websites are the best stock market game sites for individuals wanting to learn how to trade. Scoring a perfect #1 and #2 ranking by Mashable is a testament to all of the hard work that our Stock-Trak employees have put into the design and functionality of our sites,” says Mark T. Brookshire, Founder.
The article praises Wall Street Survivor’s ease of use for beginners, noting that while other websites also follow the same paper trading model, they are not geared towards learning the stock market for the first time. One of the reasons that Wall Street Survivor’s stock market paper trading game secured the top spot was because Mashable liked the way the website provides feedback on each stock that the user trades.
They also applaud the personal touch of placing the avatar of Wall Street Survivor’s Founder, Mark T. Brookshire, next to each of his stock evaluations. This stock evaluation is a composite score based on 5 independent factors: the overall Wall Street Survivor community sentiment, Motley Fool’s CAP rating, an average of Wall Street’s Buy/Sell rating, Zack’s Rank, and a technical analysis evaluation. Each stock in the Wall Street Survivor database is then given a score ranging from 0 to 100, based on Mr. Brookshire’s algorithm.
Additionally, Wall Street Survivors education section, Survivor U enhances their #1 ranking. This stock market information library caters to all trading knowledge levels, and the discussion forums help beginners get their questions answered by an active community.
Lastly, Mashable.com applauds Wall Street Survivor’s $100,000 competition, wherein users start with virtual $100,000 to invest and the winner is the person who can increase that principal the most within the month. The site boasts a wide array of contests that any user can start and participate in to compete for the $8,000 in cash in prizes that are paid out every month.
