Additional Stock Market Games for Virtual Trading and Investing

The following are three more good stock market games for the iPhone, each is slightly different from one another so decide which stock trading game you like based on the look and feel for you and which ones your friends will also play. Using the social features provided by these stock market games make them more enjoyable and fun to watch who is the hot investor between your friends and family or throughout the world as there is a top player list for these different smart phone based stock market games as well.

1. Stock Market Millionaire by ChickenBrick Studios is a slick stock market game, with a nice interface. This game is free to play and gives you $100,000 virtual dollars to begin amassing your virtual stock portfolio. Get the largest fortune and become the best investor across the Stock Market Millionaire network across the world.

2. Hot Shot Stocks by ChickenBrick studios is another stock market game that also makes for simple and easy virtual investing in stocks, but also bonds, mutual funds and other stock exchanges available for investment around the world. This component makes this free virtual investing game slightly different and provides a different incentive for a player to see which mutual funds also perform well. For the young investor or someone with a retirement account this will allow you to become more in tune with the day to day action inside of the mutual fund world that otherwise is hard to track from your quarterly statements.

3. Learn Stocks by Recession Apps is a very nice stock market game with lots of useful details for learning how to track stock movements, watch the day to day action and follow along by making trades of your favorite companies virtually. Learn Stocks gives you $10,000 to invest and so is a much more realistic stock market game for the average investor out there that does not have hundreds of thousands of dollars to make investments with. This smaller start amount will help teach a new investor about the market in a real world setting without the risk. This app does have a free trial version, but if you want all the fun and benefits that the developers have made for this application you will have to pay for the full version.

4. Best Brokers by Daniel Fontes is a typical market transaction game that has simple and easy to read stock dash boards. Designed for the European virtual stock market tycoon by allowing you to start your portfolio with 50,000 Euros. Trade over a thousand US and International stocks in real time during the trading hours. The stock market game allows you to easily create groups with your friends so you can compete and become the richest and smartest investor of the bunch through daily trading your best picks.

5. If you are looking for a different type of stock market game then check out Wolf on Wallstreet. It is a 3D game that gives you control of the character and he is walking down wall street making trades and cashing out the big bucks. After being accused of insider trading everyone is looking to take you down and you have to show them that you are not to be messed with and can still be the big dog on wallstreet. Check out the video of this fun action stock game.

      nice apps. i've liked these for myself. they let me trade my bad decisions out in a simulation, and then i can do the right thing when it comes to the real thing!

      for my kids i like the simpler ones - ie Perfect People and One Day Trader.
