The investment trading simulation allows students to learn about share, fund management, foreign
currency and interest bearing securities trading in a controlled/simulated environment. This simulation
gives you a sum of S$300,000 imaginary money and allows you to “purchase” or “sell” investments in all
companies listed on the Singapore Exchange (SGX) and other markets in Singapore and overseas
markets. You are to start on the 28th September 2015 (Monday) and your last trading day is the
13th November (Friday) 2015.
You are required to undertake imaginary transactions and record all the transactions that you undertake.
You can purchase any instrument that the SGX and other main markets in Singapore and overseas, so
it is not just shares. .For example when you “purchase” a share you will need to record the purchase
price (this can be obtained by checking the price on the web.). Transaction cost will depend on the
“broker” you use to undertake the transaction, thus ignore brokerage. A suggested format for recording
your transactions is shown below (you may choose to record other relevant items):
