Investopedia - Your Source For Investing Education

This site contains information on investing money. It has a stock market simulation "game" that allows users to make trades (long, short, limit, stops, options, margin) with real time markets in a play money portfolio that also realizes stock splits, dividends, and mergers. The simulation can be set up for group competition. Investopedia also has tutorials for beginners and intermediate investors, financial calculators, dictionary, and articles discussing a wide range of topics from mutual funds to retirement. The site is easy to use but does have a moderate amount of advertisements, perhaps necessary to keep it free.
