I have searched the net after option trading game, but can't find. Does such game exist?

I have an idea of a option trading game where you buy and sell indexoptions on some index in realtime. It should be a competition every week to decide who is "The optiontrader of the week". Resetting portfolio each week, so anyone can win a weektitle. That last all the time and anyone can jump in and join the competition any week. Buying calls and puts, monthly as well as weekly options. With discussion trader to trader in forum. Highscorelist and after one year "The ultimate optiontrader" is getting this title.

It would be possible to do this in a single thread here where each trader write messages what they buy in the thread and update his own portfolio. But this is not proffessional, dont you think? And where to find realtime optionprice if doing like this?
I havent time to work with this every week.

Isnt this a good idea for a financial company to make this idea for real?

Ideas, thoughts?

Most of the brokerages will have a paper trading option attached to their brokerage services. They will do this usually in conjunction with an account to facilitate the opening of the account. This game you speak of could easily be created using TD Ameritrade or OptionsXpress which have good papertrading accounts which can be opened with a free brokerage account (no fees or min balances)

There are certainly tournaments and games out there. For my masters of science in finance class we used a website called http://www.stocktrak.com/

http://www.stocktrak.com/ has "games" and other tournaments
