DENVER--WomenOf.com™, the online, community-focused magazine for women, today announced a partnership with Wall St. Connection, a free financial site designed to give investors or others interested in the stock market the chance to learn about online trading. WomenOf.com™ readers can join the Net's longest running stock market simulation from the front page of any WomenOf.com™ magazines.
Studies have shown that a main concern for women is financial independence and saving for retirement. The Employee Benefit Research Institute recently released a survey showing that even though 59% of women say they have saved for retirement, an equal percentage among those saving haven't figured out how much they will need, and 40% haven't begun saving at all.
Through Wall St. Connection's free, realistic game, women can practice making stock picks for their investment portfolio, even joining the WomenOf.com™ group or others such as Moms with Portfolios, University Women and Wall Street newcomers. Joining a group is simple through just a couple clicks of the mouse. Women can easily compare their investment performance against other people in the game with similar backgrounds. Or, they can start their own group.
With $100,000 in fantasy dollars, players can buy and sell stocks from Nasdaq, NYSE and AMEX, using actual stock prices. Both long and short positions can be traded, and women can lock in profits using stop and limit orders. Investor tools from Nasdaq allow women one-click access to stock evaluations by Wall Street analysts, company financial fundamentals and more.
