The Yale Stock Trading Game is available to both educators and corporate leaders interested in providing a fun, quick, and effective introduction to stock markets and efficient capital market theory.
Unlike other trading games, there is no simulated market or connection to actual stock markets: it is strictly the trades between the players that creates the market for each game. As a result, free trials can only be used by GROUPS and you will need at least 20-30 people to properly simulate a market. A trial round lasts 25 minutes and can take place on the date and time of your choosing.
If you are a group of students, please coordinate your trial request through a faculty member or administrator at your institution.
Groups must designate a group administrator who will be responsible for scheduling the game, inviting players, and distributing the final results. Instructions for doing so will be sent to the group administrator once we have processed your application.
Please contact us at least 2 weeks before you are planning to play the game to ensure that everything can be set up in time. Apart from your admin contact and a date/time for the trial, we will also need your time zone.
If your group is ready to go and you’re willing to be your game’s contact/admin, let us know. Thanks!
