Montreal, Quebec (PRWEB) June 17, 2010
WallStreetSurvivor.com, the web's most realistic real-time stock market game, has opened up its platform to allow teachers, investment clubs, financial websites and all its users to create their own public or private stock trading contests. Instead of competing in WallStreetSurvivor.com’s standard monthly $100,000 contests, users can now create their own contests, customize the trading dates, cash balances and other contest parameters, and invite their friends and colleagues to their own contests.
Everyone can now register for free and create their own stock and/or option online trading contest on WallStreetSurvivor’s feature rich paper trading platform. High school and college business and economic teachers can now use this platform to launch their own private trading contests that are open to just their own students. And other financial websites, newspapers, and investment clubs can use the site’s virtual real-time trading platform to create their own public co-branded trading contests. Contest administrators can upload their own company logos and update daily messages to provide their respective users a co-branded and personalized experience while on the WSS website.
Previously, WallStreetSurvivor.com allowed groups like college professors and high school teachers to have their own separate rankings on WallStreetSurvivor but they could not control the trading dates or initial cash balance. Now any WallStreetSurvivor member can launch their own contest and invite their students or friends. The contest administrators can set their own trading dates, cash balance, commission structure, and other trading parameters.
With the new co-branding features, other websites or groups that create contests will be given a URL to send to their friends/students to invite them to play. On the WallStreetSurvivor platform contest creators or administrators will be able to offer their users a branded registration page, their company logo on the main trading and reporting pages on WSS, and a message box that will greet their users every time they log into to check their platform.
The company that developed WallStreetSurvivor.com is Stock-Trak. Mark Brookshire, founder of Stock-Trak was quoted as saying "We receive many phone calls from other financial websites, newspapers, and advisory newsletters, that want to run their own stock market contests for their readers but don't have the budget for a fully branded site. By opening up our WallStreetSurvivor.com platform, these companies now can run their co-branded contests on our website for free. It's a win-win situation, they get to keep their audience engaged in their offering and have a co-branded trading contest for free, and we pick up some web traffic and branding ourselves for our WallStreetSurvivor platform and our other stock market educational offerings."
WallStreetSurvivor members can play both public and private contests. A public contest is displayed on the “Join Contest “page and can be joined by all WallStreetSurvivor.com members. A private contest is not displayed on the “Join Contest” page and can only be joined via an invitation from the administrator. Current WallStreetSurvivor.com members will not have access to any private contests that the have not been invited in, thus insuring privacy for the players of that contest.
Founded in 1990, Stock-Trak is the leading provider of web-based stock market games and training products.
