Why use a simulator ?

  • Stock market simulators are a fun way to learn about trading and investing without risking a penny of your own money.
  • Stock market simulators run the the gamut, from basic investment options and trading strategies to more complex features such as options and forex trading.
  • Some simulators sponsor contests that provide an opportunity to test your skills against other users and win real money.
  • Stock market simulators provide a safe, structured environment where would-be investors can teach themselves about investing without risking any money. 
  • With time and practice using the simulators, the transition to actual trading in a real brokerage account can become seamless. 
  • Just remember, once you leave the virtual world and start trading with real money, mistakes can be costly and a bad trade can result in the loss of real dollars.
