Can a monkey throwing darts beat the pros?


Probably. If you've "A Random Walk on Wall Street" you know the theory: Luck trumps skill. Most "professional" money managers underperform the overall stock market, and charge heavy fees to do it. You might be better off just having a monkey throw darts at the financial pages to pick your stocks.

This fun app "builds" a portfolio of random stocks (selected from the SP500) by the action of a monkey throwing darts at a dartboard (you'll just have to assume the financial pages are taped to it, I guess.)

Great sound effects, fun "banana facts" and even accurate stock prices. For fun try throwing darts and missing, or aim for the ticker board. Even email your monkey portfolio to yourself. Will you and a monkey beat the pros? Maybe, maybe not. But you'll have more fun with this app.

Great for traders!


This app is fairly amusing, and entertaining to see how often and quickly you can put together a portfolio to see how it does against the pros who spend countless hours reading charts (Bud Fox)
