As an investor, we often want to believe that we can pick stocks that can beat the market.
So I made a
game that allows us to test if we could actually pick stocks that can beat the market.
The idea is simple: you will be given facts of an anonymous stock on a historical date. Based on the information, you will choose whether to invest or ignore that stock. Once you have made the decision, SGXcafe will immediately tell you if you are correct on the next screen.
Of course, I do not claim that this simplified game will be an accurate measure of your stock-picking capabilities, but I do hope that this game can assist you in testing or refining whatever strategies that you may have and help you become a better investor!
More importantly, I hope you will have fun playing!
It is, after all, a game :)
p.s.: I will continue to improve the game. So feel free to share with me your thoughts. Also, if you have ideas on other types of investing-related games that can help us become better investors, I am all ears.
p.p.s.: The beta version of this game was pre-released to Friends of SGXcafe. All scores as well as the leaders' board will be reset as I made some tweaks to the algorithm and question selection. Thank you to all who provided feedback!

In an attempt to find an answer to this question, I will perform a series of analyses in this and upcoming articles. Today, I ...
A Simple Trend Analysis of Dividends
One factor that affects whether I purchase a stock or not is how much dividends it gave out last year, and for how many years it has been doing so. This is because when I purchase stocks, I am hoping mainly to benefit from dividend gains rather than capital gains. One obvious question would be: how much can we rely on the dividends that was paid out in the past to predict future dividends? One might ...
My BeatTheMarket Strategy
BeatTheMarket is a mini-game that I built in SGXcafe. The idea is simple: you will be given facts of an anonymous stock on a historical date. Based on the information, you will choose whether to invest or ignore that stock. Once you've decided, SGXcafe will immediately tell you on the next screen if that stock beat the index one year later. If you have not tried it, I encourage you to try it now :) ...
