Placing Orders

Participants are provided an intuitive form to enter buy and sell orders. All orders placed by participants are “market orders”, therefore the transactions will be executed at what ever the market determines the price to be based on the market’s buy/sell orders, a market clearing algorithm, as well as the float of the individual companies.

Just like funds in the real world, there are restrictions around risk the portfolio managers are allowed to take.

Controls are built into the simulation that prohibit students from placing excessively large bets on individual stocks.
