Welcome to the Investment Society

Signup for our membership and start trading stocks using virtual currency on US based exchanges for free. 

Winners (1st, 2nd & 3rd) of this competition will be given a cash reward!

After you have signed up one of our commitee members will email you with the link to the platform where you will have to create an account.

Documents will also be attached to the email to give you a brief overview of how to set up your account and begin trading. 

Trading Platform

Trading will take place on MarketWatch's virtual trading platform and is designed for beginners and advanced traders

Each member will start off with $50,000 in virtual currency to make trades and have the option to borrow another $50,000 at a 3% interest rate.

This platform is live and replicates exactly how the market is operating at a given time,  it is a US based platform so only stocks on the NYSE and NASDAQ can be traded.

Usual market times for the US are 9:30 am - 4:00pm so for the UK you will be allowed to conduct live trades in between 14:30 - 21:00. Any trades placed before or after these times will take place as the market opens.
