What is the Hollywood Stock Exchange?

From the website: “Buy shares of your favorite actors and their new movies. Watch their values rise or fall based on their success. Prices soar with a blockbuster opening at the box office and plummet with a bomb no one went to see.” For those who have never played, the game is as a complicated or as easy as you want to make it (much like the real stock market).

Now, I know several of you already have HSX accounts. To keep things fair, in order to participate in the league you’ll need to start up a new account. Here’s what you need to do to join the league:

1. Go to www.hsx.com and start up a new account.

2. You can use any username you want, although if everybody used the format “DVDTalk_[DVDTalk Username]” it would make things easier to track. For example, if my DVDTalk username was "Stockbroker" my account for the league will be DVDTalk_Stockbroker.

When signing up, put down BadlyDrawnBoy in the "Did a friend refer you?" column. Feel free to take advantage of any of the special offers and freebies offered at this time as well.

3. After you sign up, go to “Account Information” and set your “Screen Name” to be exactly the same as your screen name here at DVDTalk. This will help avoid confusion.

4. Come back here and post your HSX user name. You need to have a new account, or I won’t add you to the league.

5. Entry into the league is always open...we welcome newcomers!

Remember, new players: add this week's "Bottom Feeder" (BadlyDrawnBoy) as your referral when signing up!

Seems like a lot of people have lost interest lately, myself included. Hard to get excited about most of the movies beind released lately, especially since the adjusts are typically so minimal now.

I saw it in a thread a little while ago, and I am also in favor of resetting our accounts, probably once a year for the season. Or new ones could be started, and those who wanted to hang on to the current ones could do so as well.

I've missed out on openers for the second week in a row. Did they bump up the halt time? It used to be around 6/7 pm on the day a movie opens.

Wow, I've been busy this week so haven't had much of a chance to play the market. Last time I checked I was at $4.1mil... Ouch. Back up to $3.7 right now, but still. Bad week to play stocks for an extended period of time I guess.

And I didn't know about the change to halt time either. I went to sell this weekends openers at 8:30et and boom. Shorting Mr. 3000 is going to hurt very badly I expect... Was intending on longing it for the weekend after I covered the short. Not a fan of moving the halt to the middle of the afternoon, at least 9pm gave pretty much everyone a chance to play the openers on Friday.

But I'm sure he was a bit put off... but I digress...

I was planning on going long on Sky Captain but never got around to getting it. At least I've been getting a steady income out of War of the Worlds since it was put on the fast-track.

Wow. -20 for sky captain. I'm pretty sure some people are about to jump off the building on that one.

Yeah, what a massive fall. I had 11k shares long on it, yet somehow managed to survive the day up $350k. Not exactly sure how after losing so much on Sky Captain, but I'll take it.

Ah thanks for looking out for my devilshalo.

I'm thinking about doing a reset now that I have a better handle on the game but I'll probably just stick it out.

My big gamble this weekend was a huge short on sky captain and it paid off surprisingly. I really thought I was gonna eat it after all the good review it had last week.
