#1 Global Portfolio Simulation
Complete professor reports, more security types, and university-centered learning.
Introducing StockTrak – the college and university version of HowTheMarketWorks
Upgrade Your Portfolio Simulation
HTMW is the best free stock game on the web, loaded with tons of awesome features like real-time trading, streaming portfolios, and integrated assignments. To keep HTMW free, we are sponsored by the brokerage industry, and run some advertisements throughout the site. We also leave the door open to the general public – almost half of our users are individuals and adult investment clubs, and limit the security types available for trading.
To bring the full focus back to education, all college and university lecturers and professors are encouraged to take advantage of our collegiate version – StockTrak.com.
StockTrak takes everything you know and love about HTMW, and kicks it up to a whole new level. StockTrak is entirely focused on enhancing personal finance, accounting, investments, derivatives, finance, and more classes at the college level. In addition to the basic stock and mutual fund portfolio simulation, StockTrak includes:
Over 100 Integrated Lessons
Full integrated, customizable curriculum – tailored for universities. Over 120 separate activities (and counting) activities available for your class assignments – including our full Personal Finance curriculum and advanced trading tutorials for university classes.
Many university finance textbooks include activities and exercises tailored to StockTrak. We also build the integrated lessons to match the recommended curriculum in the most popular textbooks.
The enhanced Assignments on StockTrak let you choose how students get credit for quizzes – save their first score, or let them retry to get all questions right
StockTrak more than doubles the available tutorial and walkthrough videos available for students. In addition to more help on basic order types, it also includes options, futures, and forex trading tutorials.
More Security Types
Expand your class stock game to include corporate and treasury bonds, international stock exchanges, options, futures, currencies, commodities, and more (you can even include cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin)
Multi-dimensional Professor Reports
We built a whole new teacher reports section, with full transaction histories for all students, full class spreadsheet exports, most popular stocks for each week, historical portfolio values, and more
You can group your students in teams – each student still progresses through their own assignments and makes their own trades, but portfolios for the whole team aggregate together for a better group project
