Investing in the stock market can be an intimidating and complex task for many new investors. Investing brings a considerable amount of rewards, as well as risks. So, before putting your hard-earned savings on the line, why not practice with a virtual account?

Our Simulator uses real data from the stock markets in order to reproduce the experience of using a real online brokerage account. Users are provided with a virtual cash balance and can place virtual trades using real market data. The simulator is used for a variety of reasons: educators use it as a tool to introduce students to the stock market, some employ it to test new investing strategies, and others use it to experience what it "feels like" to place a trade. Regardless of your current level of financial knowledge, the Simulator can help make you a better investor.

In addition to the educational aspect, we think the Simulator is pretty fun as well!
