How would you like to make real money investing with play money? You can at UpDown.com. You get one million dollars in play money and you make real money by beating the return of the S&P 500. To determine earnings, UpDown considers your portfolio performance in the current month, the length of your track record, and your performance since you started. If you can consistently beat the market you can earn more money. You also make money for writing analysis and referring people. UpDown pays out monthly via Paypal.

I started last month and my portfolio earned 11% while the S&P returned -2.3%. I earned $3.89. That is not much but the top earner has earned over $1900 since he started in September of last year (only five months). He only has a return of 5.5% since he started but he has written a lot of highly ranked analysis. The second highest earner has made $1870 in the same time frame. He has a return of 160% with only three analyses. That is pretty good money just for trading play money.

I think UpDown should pay out more for performance than analysis because a well written analysis is worthless if it can’t make you any money in the market (the top money earner only has a sad 5% return with all his highly rated analysis). You can also get your buddies to give you a high rating regardless of whether your analysis is actually good.
