PlayerSX is a virtual online player stock exchange, where users can buy, sell or trade shares of professional athletes just like stocks on a real stock market. Some shares will provide a better return on investment than others, dependent upon several factors such as the performance of that athlete throughout the market session. Only shares of athletes on sports teams that move on to the post-season (seasonal markets) or win their game (daily markets) will retain a value and be paid out when the market closes.
‘Daily Markets’, also called ‘Dailies’, refers to a special type of market session that is much shorter than the regular season-long (or ‘seasonal’) markets. This might include a single day session, a week-long session, or a post-season session that lasts for some other set amount of time. Currently on PlayerSX, NHL dailies are for Saturdays only, while NFL dailies are Sundays only. Please note these market formats are subject to change.
PlayerSX was designed to be completely scalable to each user’s preferred playing frequency. This means you can choose to manage your portfolio and transactions as often as you like – as much as every day (even several times a day), on a weekly or semi-weekly basis, or as little as once throughout an entire seasonal market session. You can decide which approach is best for you – and even change it up at any time.
PlayerSX is designed to meet the needs of many different users’ playing styles. This means that you can choose a more aggressive or “high-risk” portfolio, stick to a more conservative “low-risk” portfolio, or have a diversified portfolio that incorporates both strategies. Each method has its advantages and drawbacks, but only you can decide which strategy will afford you the most fun and potentially the most success.
Yes! You can own player shares from any available, active league in your PlayerSX portfolio.
The initial public offering (IPO) phase is the period in which an unlimited number of player shares can be purchased.
The IPO period varies for each sport and market, but typically ends during the second week of the regular season (seasonal markets) or before the first game of the day (daily markets). After the IPO has ended, player shares can only be bought, sold or traded between users, if they choose to do so.
During the initial IPO phase, no. There are unlimited shares available for each player. However, after the IPO has ended, the total number of shares available is fixed at the total amount purchased during the IPO. These player shares can then only be bought, sold, or traded between users during the regular season (seasonal markets).
The PlayerSX algorithm uses a predictive model to try and forecast a player’s points output for the market session, and then factors in the odds of their team making the playoffs (seasonal markets) or winning their game (daily markets). That grade is then compared to other players of the same position and adjusted for the number of overall shares of that player, to determine their estimated share value.
Current estimated share values suggest what the projected payout amount would be at that given moment and do not represent what the actual payout amount will be. However, the actual sale price of a player’s shares during the regular season (seasonal markets only) is determined solely by the buyer and seller. This free market concept means share values are affected by supply and demand as well as their perceived future value, so actual prices can fluctuate regardless of the current posted estimated share value.
No. Only players on teams that make the playoffs (seasonal markets) or win their game (daily markets) will retain their share value at the time of payout. When the market closes, the money from players of teams that lose (daily markets) or fail to make the playoffs (seasonal markets) will be absorbed by the winning side of the market.
Only players on teams that make the playoffs (seasonal markets) or win their game (daily markets) will have their shares paid out. If a player’s team fails to do so, the payout amount for that player is $0.00 USD. For players on teams that make the playoffs (seasonal markets) or win their game (daily markets), the final payout amount for each share is influenced by the player’s performance compared to their PlayerSX prediction, the total amount of money absorbed from the losing market, and the total number of shares owned for that player.
Yes. Players with a larger number of shares purchased in the IPO phase will have their total value split more ways than a player who is less owned. Therefore, the final payout will be less than a similar player who is less owned. The PlayerSX algorithm ensures that a certain percentage of the share’s IPO value is retained, however, final payout amounts are directly related to the number of shares owned.
The player’s estimated share value will be instantly affected based on the odds of their new team making the playoffs (seasonal markets) or winning their game (daily markets).
Share value is an estimation based on a player’s current performance, so an injured player’s share value will gradually decrease the more games that they miss.
Selling and trading of player shares is available for seasonal markets only. In your Portfolio, find the player/shares you would like to sell or trade and click the corresponding “Sell” button. You can choose to sell as many of the shares you currently own as you’d like. Enter the price you would like to ask for each share, and the total asking price will be automatically calculated. Once you post the sale, it will appear on the Trading Floor page.

Once you view your offer, you can choose to accept the offer or provide a counter offer. If you click ‘Accept Offer’, the sale/trade will be processed and the player shares will be removed from your account.
