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.
