Brand New Features on StockTrak!

Professors, we heard your feedback and requests this past semester, and decided to upgrade our StockTrak site with brand new features to improve your experience on our site. Here is the list of all the new features of our new and improved StockTrak site: 1. Custom Exchanges Tool We created a brand new tool to Read More…

Custom Exchanges

Almost every class on StockTrak restricts the universe of securities that are available for each student’s portfolio – whether by restricting entire security types or just limiting trades to certain exchanges. However, we have received many requests to take this a step further, to allow professors to either restrict certain specific stocks, or to only Read More…

Enhanced Ranking Report

Professors may have already realized there are two separate Rankings pages on StockTrak – the “Live Rankings” (which is visible for students), and the Rank Report (available in your Class Summary Reports). The rank report uses end of day values from the previous trading day, and includes useful tools for managing your class – including Read More…

Reset Student Accounts

Professors often ask for our team to reset individual accounts, or even entire classes after a “practice period” at the beginning of the semester. These requests have been getting so popular that we built it right into your admin pages! Starting in Spring 2020, the “Ranking” report in your professor administration tools will have a Read More…

Real-Time Forex Comes To StockTrak

The latest enhancement to StockTrak finally brings to bear our real-time, true-to-life Forex simulation! Our previous currency trading simulation allowed trading on a pure cash basis – students could buy and sell currencies at the real-time FX rates. While this is still very instructive, it missed out on the full nuance of Forex trading with Read More…

User Account Generation

We take student data privacy seriously at StockTrak – with constant innovations to keep student data secure. However, we work with more and more schools that have their own restrictions on what kinds of personal information can be gathered, even for administrative purposes. To help make sure that all schools have access to StockTrak, we Read More…

StockTrak Teams

StockTrak is often used as a group project in investments and finance classes, where two or more students jointly manage a portfolio. Until now, all students in a group would need to share a login – making it impossible to track individual activity and performance. Enter StockTrak Teams! How Does It Work? With a regular Read More…

New Custom Reporting Tool Added!

Reporting might be THE MOST important feature on StockTrak for professors. Our newest update gives every instructor the ability to build their own Custom Reports – so you can see the fields YOU need, exactly as YOU need to see them!   How It Works To use the new Custom Reports, go to your “Summary Read More…

Equities Trading Page Enhancements

We just rolled out enhancements to our equities trading page, integrating more research, better charts, and an easier-to-read quote box for the Fall semester! Check out the image map below to see the new page – hover over any info element for more information.

Automatically Copy Assignments

StockTrak’s assignments feature is a fantastic way to help get your students introduced to the trading platform and follow up with trading. However, remembering your exact settings for each assignment every semester has always been a bit of a burden. Thankfully, our latest update makes this a thing of the past! The new “Duplicate Assignments” Read More…

Custom Time Zones Now Available

StockTrak is based on the East Coast, which means our servers operate in New York Time. This conveniently syncs up with trading on American equities exchanges, but not very well for European and Asian exchanges. We also have received some feedback from the (vast majority) of students who do not happen to be in Eastern Read More…

New class rules – Diversification

Every class that uses StockTrak is different – some focus on equities, others derivatives, still others on Forex or Bonds. However, all classes have one thing in common: an emphasis on portfolio diversification. StockTrak has supported basic diversification rules for many years. Our “Position Limit” rule puts a cap on how much your students can Read More…

Public Portfolios

One of the most common requests we get from instructors is if students can see each other’s trades. Well, now they can!

You asked and we listened – cryptos are now available for trading! Students can enter values in Read More…

New Class Creation Help

When you set up your class on StockTrak, there are over 50 different settings you can tweak to make the best possible simulation for your class.

However, with our most recent update, we have introduced our brand-new Spots trading pit, giving Read More…

New Feature – Trade Notes

It is essential that students are able to justify every trade placed while using StockTrak – most professors already require students to write summaries of their trading activities, usually as a final report or presentation of their portfolio. The only downside is that these summaries are always written with 20/20 hindsight – it is hard Read More…

Assignments Upgrade

A common request we receive is professors looking for ways to make StockTrak more accessible for students in entry-level classes – students who are first starting to understand the fundamentals of investments and finance, or participating in remote classes with less face time with professors for explanation on how to get their portfolio started. Well, Read More…

Student-Only Rankings

One of the most common requests we’ve received from professors is to remove themselves from the class ranking, leaving only student accounts. We have just as many professors who like to leave “benchmark” portfolios for students to compete against, keeping the competitions lively. To accommodate both types of teaching, we are happy to announce a Read More…

Open Positions Sorting

The Open Positions on StockTrak have just gotten an upgrade. Now from the “list” view, students can sort their holdings alphabetically, quantity held, price paid, last price, market value, or profit/loss. Simply click the column heading of the value you would like to sort by to instantly re-order your holdings by what matters most.

New Career Center

This might be the most valuable update to StockTrak yet! Last year, over 80% of students who used StockTrak believed it made them a stronger candidate in the job market, and we take that information seriously. We want to help your students find jobs, and to help, we have launched our new Career Center. The Read More…

Exercising Options Upgrade

If your class includes options trading or derivatives, you have probably covered options, and how to exercise them, in great detail. In the past, StockTrak generally discouraged students from exercising options, since it is generally more profitable to sell the option contract itself and keep the time premium. If students wanted to exercise their options, Read More…

Real-Time Class Rankings

The Achilles Heel of big class competitions on StockTrak used to be the lag between when your students’ portfolio values updated, and when they moved in the rankings. For big classes, this delay could be over 2 hours long. With this most recent update, your class rankings are now streaming in real time – as Read More…

New Streaming Prices

Using StockTrak could be an exercise of patience for students who day trade – constantly refreshing the Open Positions to see price movements can be draining. Not anymore!
