Wanted to pass this one on to everyone that likes following stocks. I have been running a 'virtual fund' on Marketocracy.com for a few years. It has been a great learning experience. You run a fund on the site and the top 100 funds get pooled together into a real mutual fund. Best of all, those 100(M100) get paid to run the fund. It's pretty cool. I've made M100 4 times. Here is my manager page at Marketocracy: http://www.marketocracy.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/Portfolio.woa/ps/ManagerPublicPage/login=swatson1 When investing, you have to follow fund rules for compliance. It has taught me a lot about diversification and managing risk.
