Simulator How-To Guide: The User Interface Tabs

Let's first examine the seven tabs located at the top of the simulator's user interface. By accessing each of the different tabs, you will have the ability to navigate through different areas of the simulator. Note: upon clicking the desired tab, additional links will appear in the space below the tabs.

1. My Home provides a quick look at your Investopedia account as well as a location for you to change your profile settings.

2. Portfolio provides a summary of your current portfolio holdings, your stock watch list and your trading history.

3. Trading contains the part of the simulator that you'll need to input your trade orders and review any outstanding open and failed trades.

4. Ranking shows your current placing for any specific competition.

5. Markets contains tools for researching and selecting the companies you want to trade, such as, a research section, a ticker symbol lookup tool and much more.

6. Awards contains various awards that you can earn in exchange for completing simulator activities and/or goals.

7. Games allows you to create, manage and review the games you're participating in and also join existing games. By default, users are invited to join an Investopedia game. We recommend you complete this how-to guide within the "Investopedia Competition (no end)" game.
