What is Stock Market Game
The Stock Market Game is a trading simulator app and financial education platform for beginners who want to learn the basics and fundamental strategies of trading and investing.
This trading education app allows you to take your first steps in the financial markets in a risk-free environment. You can learn the ropes of trading at your own pace and without any financial risk.
P.S. We made the app’s characters honoring the three legends of finance: Warren Buffett, George Soros, and Satoshi Nakamoto. Thus the app’s nickname – Three Investeers.
Meet the team
We are software developers with a passion for finance. We’re learning to invest and trade (with our ups and downs) and building a fun learning platform to share our insights and experience so others can save time and resources.
Dana is our quality assurance specialist and one of our most active users. She’s an HR manager and we turn to her when we need a fresh perspective and a boost of energy.
The idea of the Stock Market Game was fueled by the pandemic of 2021. During this time, we saw an unprecedented amount of beginners who started trading various financial instruments.
Reading the discussions in investing and trading forums, we realized that most beginner traders and investors don’t know what they’re doing.
It was sad to see many people losing all their savings even in a growing market.
We understood that this was an appropriate time to create a platform where beginners can dip their toes into financial markets without gambling away their savings and, simultaneously, learn the market basics and price action strategies.
Daniels had previously built Forex Hero – one of the leading education apps about currency markets. And Lauris had a hands-on experience with cryptocurrencies and trading software technologies.
Thus we decided to create a unified learning resource about all the primary financial instruments – stocks, crypto, forex, and commodities.
P.S. Not long after we first met, we created a quick, standalone project – a crypto simulator called Bitcoin Hero. We launched it in two weeks, and, thanks to the popularity of crypto, the app went viral on Reddit, Product Hunt, Hacker News, and other sites.
☔ Fail safe
We aim to help people save money and nerves by making newbie mistakes in a game rather than with a real trading broker.
❌ No fluff
We hate fluff and ineffective theory.
So, for several years, we have gone through the best books and seminars about trading and condensed our favorite learnings into bite-sized and actionable nuggets, which we are gradually releasing in the School section of the app.
🔨 Learn by doing
Books are awesome. But they’re not always the most effective way to learn a complex subject if you’re doing it on your own.
In fact, scientific research about education has confirmed that gamification elements help to learn a subject in less time than traditional approaches (Hamari, J., 2013).
Students who take a moment to pause and think about their learning (called metacognition) tend to learn more and show better results.
That’s why we have combined an interactive trading school with a real-price investing simulator and incorporated various metacognition tricks to turbo-charge your learning process.
