We Gamify Stock Trading

Play the first weekly fantasy game that teaches you how to effectively trade stocks.

Investing isn't a game,
but successful trading can be.

Play the first market-based app game that teaches you a powerful trading strategy.

Trading for gamers, by gamers

Built by two avid gamers, TradeJester's Earnings Game is the first weekly game that offers you the chance to win real money by virtually trading stocks around earnings announcements. Unlike paper trading, which caters to skilled traders and overwhelms with its variety, the Earnings Game simplifies the stock market and turns trading into an exhilarating player vs. player experience.

A new challenge every week

Pick Six Stocks

Each week you choose six new stocks to play that have earnings announcements coming up the following week.

Choose Long or Short

Using simple in-app analytical tools, decide if you think the stock will rise (buy long) or fall (sell short) in the coming week.

Set the Weights

Decide which, if any, stocks you want more or less exposure to, and adjust the weight accordingly. Choose from 2500, 5000 and 7500.

Fantasy Trades

You pick stocks just like you would football players in a fantasy football format, with a portfolio value that resets each week.

Win Real Money

Try out different game types including head-to-head, winner-take-all, and open-ended weekly tournaments. Find your strength and dominate.

Analyze and Learn

Use post-contest analytics to learn from successes and failures - both yours and the community's - and become a better player and trader.

An effective approach to weekly trading

Play 3 Weeks

Players that play TradeJester for at least 3 weeks have a 60.87% chance of having a positive cumulative portolio gain, and on average have a 2.38% portfolio gain over that time.

Play 4 Weeks

Players that play TradeJester for at least 5 weeks have a 78.26% chance of having a positive cumulative portolio gain, and on average have a 5.26% portfolio gain over that time.

5.22% over 6 Weeks

Of the players that have played at least 6 TradeJester contests, 87.50% have registered a cumulative positive portfolio gain over the 6 contests, and the average portfolio gain for these players is 5.22%, a number mutual fund and hedge fund managers can only dream of reaching over 6 weeks. TradeJester teaches you a sound trading strategy that can be implemented in the real stock market, but players must understand and succeed at the game before they can go after the real thing.

Who We Are

Built by two TCU graduate students, TradeJester was created with one goal in mind: offer people a new way to engage in the stock market that takes fear and intimidation away. By using fantasy games, you learn to successfully trade actively in the stock market in a low-risk, low-stress way. In the process, you will learn a trading strategy that, when you're ready, you can use to succeed in the real stock market and grow wealth.
