For most people, investing is a necessary part of life – it’s needed to grow our savings so that one day, we can retire and use an investment portfolio to support our cash flow needs. In this sense, investing is a very critical and serious undertaking.
But investing should also be fun! Making smart trades, learning from mistakes, maybe capitalizing on unique opportunities or scoring big on an IPO – and bragging about your successes to friends.
Much like we share daily moments on Facebook or travels on Instagram with friends, we should be able to share investment ideas and trade setups with friends on a platform, too.
Well that platform is here, on tickeron.com! Here’s how it works:
Step 1: Go to tickeron.com and create a new portfolio.
Step 2: Add positions to your portfolio manually or use Morningstar’s aggregation technology to pull your positions directly from your brokerage account.
Step 3: Share with friends by entering their email address!
And that’s it! Your friends will be able to see your portfolio allocation and to follow your trades, but they will not see the dollar market value of your portfolio (since many want to keep that info private). Your friend can get ideas from your portfolio management decisions, and he/she can also share opinions on re-allocations or trade moves.
It’s an interactive and fun experience. But the best part is, you’re building a virtual portfolio on tickeron.com. There’s not real money on the line, so you can use the platform to try trade ideas out, take risks you may not otherwise want to take with your real money, and get your friends’ feedback and participation along the way. In this sense, you’re getting real world practice, without real world consequences.
The Bottom Line
Building a portfolio on tickeron.com can help you polish your investment skills and also help build your brand as a trader. It’s also a great place to share your best ideas with friends and to follow what they’re doing in their own portfolios. Try building your own portfolio and sharing with friends today on tickeron.com!
