You get $5,000. You must pick 5 stocks to spend your $5,000. You can pick any 5 stocks and distribute the money in any way you wish between those stocks. Stock prices are locked at the closing bell on the last day of the previous month.
The person with the highest stock worth at the end of the month is the winner for the month.
The game is reset each month and new stock choices must be made for the following month. You can keep your current selection or choose new stocks each month. You must adjust your shares based on the last stock price in order to spend no more than $5,000.
Think of this like Fan Duel for fantasy football. Pick your team (stocks) based on the values (stock prices) and try and beat the other players.
