A pioneering app which allows you to trade on real financial markets with virtual cash has been approved for download on the Apple App Store and Google Play.
Launched by JAK Enterprises Ltd (JAK) in September on BlackBerry, Fantasy Day Trader streams live financial data from more than 170 global stock exchanges to mobile handsets or tablet PCs.
The app allows players to emulate the financial traders who can make – or lose – fortunes on the global markets each day.
Users can download and play Fantasy Day Trader for free, placing virtual trades on a wide range of stocks, currencies or commodities. Very soon they will be able to compete against one another in a number of tournament-style games for real prizes, which include live trading accounts.
Natasha Malook of JAK, says: “Fantasy Day Trader is a game-changer. You can buy Toyota in Tokyo or sell the Bank of China in Shanghai; buy gold in Dubai, corn in Chicago and oil in New York – anything a real trader can do.
“You can view charts, breaking news and also technical analysis across 55 markets and with a list of 5 top bullish and bearish stocks from more than 40 countries. In short, players can experience the thrill – and devastation – that financial traders feel when they win or lose millions on a single trade. The app is also a great way to learn about how the markets work before trading with real cash.”
