FDRAllOverAgain now offers a vse.marketwatch.com-audited Portfolio Watch service. It lets subscribers watch a trading portfolio in real time, along with detailed, running results.
Although many days may be tradeless, or even positionless, the objective of Portfolio Watch is to demonstrate a very strong positive annual return when positive returns are rare, not necessarily to daytrade.
My audited portfolio began trading on October 14, 2009 at $100,000, in order to simulate a fairly typical trading dollar amount. Marketwatch's Virtual Stock Exchange (VSE) does not allow the use of options, so I will occasionally use simple leverage to simulate buying or shorting a derivative position. This has the advantage of being easy to follow and understand. The site's welcome screen displays a brief message explaining my current trading stance or administrative info.
Of course, this service is for entertainment purposes only and does not constitute investment advice. There is no guarantee of a positive return.
Subscribers receive a password via email to gain access to the portfolio link. Viewing the portfolio requires joining vse.marketwatch.com. VSE uses an email address as your user ID, but that can be a non-working email address as it is never validated.
Click here to subscribe to Portfolio Watch, this will allow you to view the Marketwatch-audited portfolio and trades in real time.
