About the Game

What's the Game about?

The Game gives you the chance to buy and sell shares in 200 companies listed on the ASX. It simulates real sharemarket conditions, uses live prices and brokerage is charged on each trade. Best of all, the Game gives you the chance to trade without putting your own money on the line.

If you are thinking about trading but not quite ready to step in yet, the Sharemarket Game is a great way to: 

  • Develop your knowledge of the sharemarket
  • Experience what it is like to buy and sell shares
  • Test your investment strategies
  • Learn alongside your friends
  • And maybe win some great prizes

Play the Game and have fun, whether you are a seasoned investor or an absolute beginner. Entry is free and there are some great prizes.

How the Game works

  • The Game runs for 15 weeks
  • You can buy and sell shares in any of the nominated ASX Listed companies
  • You can place orders to buy or sell shares any time. ASX TradeMatch® is open (10 am to 4 pm)
  • Orders will be processed as they match with what is in the live market - available prices and quantities of shares from the real sharemarket will be taken from TradeMatch only
  • You can monitor your shares via your Game portfolio           
  • You can create a stop loss to protect your shares 


Any questions or feedback - you can ask us at share.game@asx.com.au.
