Today’s youth are tomorrow’s entrepreneurs. And there’s no denying the fact that they are increasingly drawn towards the stock market. What better way to understand the nuances of the stock market, while avoiding all the risks, than actually practising in a simulated setting! This allows them to make mistakes and learn from them without incurring losses.
In line with one of our core philosophies of imparting financial education to students and also equipping the masses with an intelligent investment analysis tool, Tickertape is collaborating as a Digital Investment Partner with IIT Bombay’s Entrepreneurship Cell’s (E-Cell) Virtual Stock Market (VSM) game.
E-Cell is Asia’s largest student-run entrepreneurship body that has received encouragement and support from UNESCO, Make in India, Startup India, and Digital India for its contribution to promoting entrepreneurship.
Put stock trading skills to test in a zero-risk environment
Virtual Stock Market game by E-Cell is India’s largest stock market competition that tests students’ trading skills in a 3-day, fast-paced, action-packed online game.
It offers a risk-free environment for students to infer the impact of news and events on the market and stock prices. Based on their inferences, students are expected to analyse shares, buy and sell virtual stocks, and accumulate a high net worth portfolio by the end of the game.
What’s more, VSM encourages healthy competition among the participants via their interactive interface where students can compete with their friends in real-time. The winning students will be rewarded with phones, cash prizes, pen drives, and other prizes worth Rs. 1,00,000.
Next, experience the adrenaline of real-time trading on Tickertape
VSM is very much in line with Tickertape’s Beat The Street (BTS) contest, which allows participants to predict top and low performing stocks for the next trading day. Once the students learn trading from the virtual environment, they can sharpen their stock trading skills in the real world via BTS. Think of VSM as a crash course on stock trading and Tickertape as the full course along with BTS to test your learnings regularly.
Tickertape’s Stock Pages host all the vital information including key metrics, financials, forecasts, technical indicators, news and events that one needs to analyse a stock. Based on the analysis, participants in BTS can predict the top and low performing stocks of the next day without any risk. And stand a chance to win Amazon vouchers of up to Rs. 3,000 daily! Learn while you earn. How is that to quench your thirst for participating in the market?
Dates of the Virtual Stock Market Game: 1st to 3rd October 2021.
Tomorrow’s entrepreneurs, see you there!
