Trailing Stops added to Popular Stock Market Game on StockTrak.com
Stock-Trak, the web’s leading purveyor of educational stock market games, has added trailing stops to their trading game at StockTrak.com. This new feature offers trailing stops by percentage or a fixed dollar amount.
The stock market is a confusing place and the goal at StockTrak.com is to demystify the stock market through practice. Many colleges and universities such as Yale, Cornell, MIT and more use StockTrak.com’s stock market game in their finance courses. Top universities use it because it mirrors real time stock market conditions, giving users a realistic trading experience.
Now Stock-Trak has added another feature, trailing stops, to its stock game to make it even more realistic. A trailing stop is a type of stop loss order which will only execute if the price of the stock or security falls a certain amount. This amount can be calculated with a percentage or a fixed dollar amount. This type of order allows users to limit their losses.
Now college students, high school students and new investors can increase their stock market knowledge by developing new strategies with this new feature. Stock-Trak founder Mark T. Brookshire says, "We are glad to be able to respond to the requests from college professors and students to add trailing stops to the number one rated stock simulation game.”
This stock simulation, which has been the number one choice among colleges since 1990, sets each user up with $500,000 in virtual trading cash. Using this money, the students manage a portfolio online. This portfolio includes stocks, bonds, mutual funds, currencies and more.
Classes also have the option of competing in contests for the duration of the course. This friendly competition fosters student and faculty interaction and increases collaboration. Professors have complete control over the game and can rank their students based on overall portfolio value or using the Sharpe ratio.
The new trailing stops feature is just one of many offered in Stock Trak’s trading room software. Learn more at www.stocktrak.com.
