How To Play

To play, visit the StockStream Twitch channel. StockStream is a voting-based stock market game. You may vote to buy or sell any stock by issuing !buy and !sell commands. At the end of each round, the votes are counted and the top voted command is executed. If you voted for the command that won the round, you gain influence on that purchase, and now have an open position.
During each Weekly Challenge, you must open at least 5 positions and close at least 5 positions to be eligible to win. Only stocks which cost more than $5 will qualify.
Your open and closed positions can be found on your profile page and eligible positions will be highlighted. Use the #w command in the chat to get a link to your page.

How To Win

Players are ranked by realized percentage return. Your realized percentage return is calculated by computing the percentage return on the money you have spent and sold. Note that the amount you spent is the price of a stock divided by the number of players that voted along with you. For example, if two players vote to buy a stock worth $100, each player has spent $50. If that stock is sold for $102, each player has profited by $1 and therefore has a realized percentage return of 2%.

Things to remember

Only stocks whose purchase price is $5 or more will qualify.
You must open and close at least 5 positions each week to be eligible for the Weekly Challenge.
Only closed positions count towards your final score.
