Mr Monk, Monkey Picker

Feature 2

As the stock market can often be a game of luck it is not uncommon to see those who trade on a whim outperform those who may have a more certain strategy.

It raises a question, can an animal that shares our genetic history beat us at our own game?

That’s right, Mr Monk, our resident Monkey Picker may be able to!

Whilst obtaining a physical monkey can be a tricky feat, we have instead opted to use a dart board to simulate the randomness of selection.

Our fictional monkey player, named Samuel Monk, will throw a dart onto a board and select 15 of the top 200 stocks on the ASX.

Each company will receive a $3300 investment as we monitor the performance of the portfolio and see it represented on the leader board! Will you beat Samuel Monk?
