Think of it as a cross between Championship Manager and being George Soros for the day. You get to pick pretty much any asset combination you like the look of, and from any asset class. Stocks, commodities, FX, Crypto - you're the boss! We start you off with a (fictional) $10,000 and you trade or hold up to 20 different assets to compete against other Pynksters for the top spot! Over time you will learn how to manage a diversified investment portfolio. Have fun and try to beat your friends and global Pynksters to be the best!
Well, that's entirely up to you! Since there are no real assets at risk - you can practice your fund management skills without any risk and, over time, with a little reading, study and luck you will get better!
There is a range of assets available so you can build your fund the way you want. Stocks, Indices, Commodities, Cryptocurrencies and Forex (Foreign Exchange, sometimes referred to as FX).
Commodities are natural resources that come from the earth. Some examples of these goods are wheat, cattle, soybeans, coal, cotton, oil and also our native prediction asset - gold.
A stock is a security which represents fractional ownership of a corporation. These are traded across the worlds' many stock markets.
A digital asset designed to work as a method of payment or exchange. Generally, these digital currencies are stored on a digital ledger or database and copies of this database are held by many thousands of different sources, making the ledger unalterable and immutable. In short, it is 'digital money'.
The FFM leaderboard is the place where Pynksters can see how their FFM results compare to other Pynksters. Pynksters will be ranked based on their Pynk Score (see below). Why not challenge your friends and see who is the most kick-ass fund manager?!
Your 'Pynk Score' is calculated using a combination of volatility, monthly and all time performance. We are constantly revising how much each factor ‘weighs’ in your Pynk score to ensure users are rewarded for making smarter, regular investment decisions, not for dumping everything into one asset and 'Hodling'.
Currently there are no prizes for the FFM leaderboard. In the coming months this will change though, with awesome prizes awarded for the best of the best FFM managers. So now is you chance to really hone your skills, perfect your fund and see if you can learn the skills to make the top spot when prizes go live!
No, these are not real traded assets and the 'money' you invest is for entertainment purposes only - and to give you a feel of how it would be to manage a fund for real!
It is likely that you have added your maximum number of assets already. You can currently add a maximum of 20 different assets at any one time.
You can request the asset you are looking for by going to the fund manager section, clicking on add asset and then following the link at the bottom of the screen - 'can't find your asset?' We don't guarantee to add every stock or asset that's requested but we do plan to build the number of assets up over time to give you plenty to choose from.
No, although we would encourage you to try it for a while as we think it is great fun and a fantastic way to learn (better than reading boring investment books right!?).
