Pick5 Media is also building an educational component, designed to work closely with business schools and promote investing skills. “There’s no better feeling than handing someone a check for “$10,000” said Pick5 Media Founder Greg Harrison. “This game is going to help people learn about investing in the stock market, and if they win, it could change their lives.” The rules are simple. Sign up and become a Portfolio Manager. Each PM starts by selecting a 5-stock lineup. Once the market opens, your lineup is set for the day and cannot be changed. You can trade any of the stocks in your lineup, and trades will be executed when the market opens on the next business day. For example: If a PM owns Pepsi and after the market opens, the PM enters a trade to sell Pepsi and buy Coke. That lineup change will occur at the market open on the next trading day, based on the opening prices for Pepsi and Coke. The Pick5 Fantasy Stock Challenge is free to enter, and free to play. The prize money comes from our sponsors. The next challenge begins on October 22.
