    Nah. WWW is way cheap right now. I'd buy it in real life, too.

    Well, actually I wouldn't buy anything in real life because I know nothing about stocks.

    That's what I mean. You seem to buy the stocks with cool abbreviations.

    For short term you want to buy jumpers after they've gone down considerably. So like when I started a few days ago, I began with Microsoft. And sure enough, they were down, today they've paid off 10k in the game. Now if it were only real money!

    Yeah, well, I could've been up another $36,000 had I held on to my oil stock another week.

    I really don't like this system.

    There is a delay in buying and selling in which time the price could plummet or skyrocket. Also, it doesn't seem to follow real time stock reports. I had some EBay stock that was up more than a point yesterday but this game reported it as going down.

    Aw, man, other people are also going with the "everyone else is going to do something dumb and lose all their money" strategy. And here I was thinking I was all clever.

    I'd invest in oil but it's just too volatile and this game doesn't represent real time pricing.

    It's the correct prices they're just delayed 15 mins. As long as you are doing the checking of stocks on their site then you're fine. Also, for any stock game, they have to be delayed, none of them are real time.

    WWW finally went up. I made $6,000 off of it in the end. Of course, I'm still way down.

    There's no delay in reality?
