    Hey guys,

    Many of you might have seen me around offering a GFX service etc.
    Well I'm going to be honest--

    I am an 18 year old about to go to college. I have been interested in investments/investing in stock-market, bonds, etc, but never really took it into spectrum.

    I thought the best way for me to practice before I actually start my investment, is to maybe join some virtual stock-market game.

    Is this a good idea?
    Also any tips in stock marketing (virtually and real-life) that you guys have to offer.

    I have read many threads and I remember someone by the name of Hound or something, said to invest in large known cooperation, and have a gradually increasing dividend payment per year.

    The game at the moment is only 60 days, but what I was thinking was dividing my money ($100,000)

    investing a little in steady cooperation, and some in new stocks which I believe will go higher.


    I appreciate everyone's input on this- whether your an expert or you are just starting as well.
