    Default Best fantasy trading sites?

    Can anyone recommend a really good fantasy trading/investing site? Preferably one that supports international markets, spread betting, forex, options trading and has good tutorials and articles.

    What I want is somewhere I can have a virtual portfolio of stocks from different countries. Also I want to be able to have spread betting, forex, covered calls etc all in the same portfolio - ie I start with 100k and can split up how much I apportion to safe, risky, riskier and silly - not have 100k for one market then have to enter another game with another 100k for spreadbetting.

    Anyone know of any sites that can do this?

    I'm using bulbearings and Investopedia at the moment.
    I blame Gordon Brown

    Have you tried http://www.digitallook.com/ ?
    Not sure whether it has all of what you are looking for. But I have seen at least some those in the site.

    If you are ready to pay them a monthly fee you can also test your strategy to see how you would have performed in the past.

    I've been using that one for about a year or so but it's limited to the UK market from what I can see. Also if i want to do spread betting and forex I have to join different games for each.

    What I'm looking for is to be able to trade international stocks/bonds/funds, buy and sell options, spread bet and dabble in some Forex all in the same portfolio.

    The idea being that I can practice apportioning different percentages of my overall portfolio to different types of investment with different levels of risk.
