Durham Trading Simulation
As part of your MSc you will have the chance to compete in the Portfolio Challenge.
Using Stock-Trak, our custom-made trading simulation software, you will build a hypothetical portfolio with securities of your choice using real time data.
Trading simulations are an essential tool in providing a training ground for knowledge application without risk.
The activity mirrors real-life on-line trading, so not only do you get hands-on experience, you improve your investment skills at the same time.
Our students are very enthusiastic about it! They are really impressed with the simulation and consistently comment on the valuable learning experience it provides. It helps develop their security selection skills, improves their investment awareness and looks great on their CV. There is a cash prize for the winner.
