About Us

Stock-Trak has been the leading provider of educational stock market portfolio simulations and personal finance applications since 1990.

Disappointed with lack of any real-world trading experience in his graduate-level Investments classes, Stock-Trak’s Founder and CEO, Mark T. Brookshire, wrote the first virtual trading application designed exclusively for college Investments classes shortly after graduating from Georgia Tech with a Master’s of Science in Management.

From the original concept of providing university students with the opportunity to simulate managing a portfolio of stocks, bonds and mutual funds, Stock-Trak’s product line continues to grow. We are constantly updating our curriculum library which now includes over 300 lessons each with built-in pop quizzes.

In 2019 we added a Personal Budgeting Game so now we can walk users through the basics of learning to live on a budget and save each month to learning to invest in the stock market.

Our family of financial education sites has grown to include nearly a dozen proprietary sites each serving a different audience and over 100 client branded sites:

  • Middle and High Schools: Financial literacy curriculum, budgeting games, and stock market games.
  • Colleges and Universities: Fully customizable portfolio simulations, personal budgeting games, trading room software, and campus-wide financial literacy events.
  • Corporations: Fully brandable finanical education and stock games used for employee education, customer acquisition and retention, and community outreach and sponsorships.

The StockTrak virtual trading application is the only virtual trading simulation that:

  • Features trading of U.S. stocks, options, bonds, futures, mutual funds, futures options, and equities from 50 global exchanges.
  • Allows for complete customization by the professor/instructor/teacher so that the trading dates, commission structure, security types, and other trading parameters can be tailored to meet the class or group objectives.
  • Encourages students to keep a “trade diary” to record their strategies as they make each trade.
  • Permits professors/instructors/teachers to review our built-in curriculum and create a customized “Assignment” that requires their students/users to read certain articles, watch certain videos, and make certain types of trades; each of these activities includes a Pop Quiz at the end to insure student mastery of the concepts being taught.
