Finance Professors and Economics Teachers: Get Students to Learn How the Market Works

Online paper trading is a fun, free, and interactive teaching tool. Any course attempting an introduction to investment finance will be incomplete without an interactive stock market game that the group can play, with the teacher as the group manager. Don’t just lecture on personal finance. Get students to play the stock market as a fun experience rather than a boring lecture on a complex topic that makes them yawn as much as a lecture on foreign exchange or global currency trends. A paper trade game experience improves finance lesson plans of economics teachers, businesses professors, personal finance teachers, and social studies teachers.

Students have been seeking alpha and learning how the market works with us since 1998. You’ll find that the smart way to learn the market is also the quick and simple way to teach students how the market works in any investing 101 course, personal finance class, investment club, economics class, or business course.

Our stock market simulation game allows your students to learn the basics of global investment markets without risk. How do the pros invest? What are the basics of portfolio management? How do I learn more about the science of portfolio construction? How do I measure my portfolio performance? How can I start seeking alpha (performance above the index) for my portfolio? How can I mingle with and learn from and even spy on the trades of some of the best stock market traders? Innovative finance courses teach students to interact with markets with their peers, to seek alpha above the index.

Students answer these investment questions for themselves as they open a free fantasy stock market account and get $1 million in fantasy money. They learn to trade by trading real stocks. They learn the market by playing the market as a virtual stock exchange paper trading game, which turns your lecture into an interactive, competitive, prize-driven, engaging gaming experience. Giving your students an investment practice tool for learning to invest in stocks will stimulate their interest in your future finance lesson plans.

Smartstocks.com has been the largest and best interactive virtual stock market exchange game in the United States since 1998. Our massive size (nearly a million registered users), our group manager controls, chat features, social reach, and our unique process to create and “graduate” wall street survivors remains unmatched. Our world class social media features have even earned us the nickname “facebook for finance nerds.” Many sites have attempted to imitate such an interactive mock trading game competition. However, our social stock market simulator continues to stand out as the most fun, easy, and smart way to get students excited to learn the basics about the stock market and investing.

Our Premium Membership (coming soon) will give you access to real-time stock quotes, plus the ability to spy on winning portfolios, trade on margin, and much more! Thanks for letting us host your group paper trading experience for your finance class, investment club, or fantasy stock market gaming group!

Also known as a fantasy stock market simulation, it replaces the old paper trade method where students actually had to get a newspaper to look up stock quotes, but didn’t have access to dynamic stock charts.
