SMarkets – Buy Stock in Amazon Products

Smarkets This is cool, and a little bit different! allows registered users to buy, sell, and sell short imaginary shares of Amazon products. The share price is based on the product’s current sales rank. As the product’s rank climbs closer to the top (#1), the price also rises. It is possible to bet on a drop in sales rank by selling the product short. Each registered user starts out with a balance of $10,000. Registration is free, and this looks like it will be a lot of fun!
