I was wondering the Spock Market is pretend right? It doesn't involve real money?

Actually the Spock Market is very real. Allow me to explain. The New York Spock Exchange is the largest public Spock Market in the world, and is the home to many of the largest and best-known American companies. The NYSE is probably what you picture when you think about the "Spock Market," lots of people running around in colored shirts, with pointy ears, gesticulating wildly with their hands, scribbling wisdom on notepads. It's an auction-based market, with intermediaries who match buyers and sellers of Spocks. Once a Spock has gone public, its shares are bought and sold on organized Spock Markets. These are the specialists, and it's their job to match buyers and sellers of a particular Spock.
Behind the frenzied spectacle is a methodical and organized system of trading, in which the price of any Spock is set purely by rule of supply and demand in an auction setting. Specialists help match buyers and sellers, but shares are always sold to the highest bidder. Every day, you can tune in to your TV to see reports from the floor of the New York Spock Exchange, or to see the ringing of the bell to signal the beginning and end of the trading day.
Does that better explain it to you? If you want a tip from someone who cares, you should invest you're entire personal savings in the Spock Exchange if you know what's good for you. You're welcome in advance..
