Would anyone be interested in playing a virtual stock market trading league? Seems interesting.

I shall peruse. Certainly looks intriguing. I'd no doubt suck badly though :P

You and me both.
But at least it's virtual money ;)

I would normally be interested but I shall say no as it would divert my attention from the futures market. I am dismayed but not surprised that the site makes no mention of the importance of risk management, expectancy or position sizing.

There are many routes to success but the challenge is to find the one that fits you best. If you find the one that suits you as a person then you can live, learn and grow with it. Even if you were given the best of systems, if it did will not sit well with your character and nature you would ignore it and not pay attention to it. Your internal drives can be stronger than external forces and they'll probably be a strong factor in your success or failure at the end of the day.

I've poked at that site a few times, but never gotten around to actually starting off. Would be happy to give it a more serious try :)

I am prepared to fail. By which I mean participate.

I'll get involved... what's the worst that could happen.

The thought has occurred to me that hanging onto the cash might be a winning strategy.

Possibly. Give it a try. League is on, it's called Lyrus.
