Yes we have run trading competitions for large companies such as Bank of Ireland, small investment clubs and groups. This is a great way to promote your business or simply have a bit of fun with some friends.
This is how it works:
- We setup a dedicated web page for your competition with registration facilities. We can brand the webpage for you (if required).
- We provide each member with a ‘simulated trading’ account with real-time pricing funded with $1,000,000 of virtual capital.
- Each participant trades the global financial markets including stocks, options, bonds, FX, futures.
- We provide a leaderboard and results table.
- You decide what the prize fund is ‘If Any’.
- You decide how long the competition will last for.
- We can promote the competition on your behalf if you wish.
We charge on a ‘per head’ basis for each competition. Prices depend on competition timeframe, number of participants, instruments to be traded and promotional activity.

What’s the difference between Options and Stocks
When you invest in a company you buy the shares of the company on an exchange and take a small ownership of that company. When you own shares you are entitled to vote, receive dividends and sell those shares if you wish. People who invest in stocks are generally happy to build a portfolio over time and benefit when the company continuously increases their profits.
Membership to Share Navigator allows you to:
- Learn how to find quality stocks at the right price – online courses available 24/7
- Stock Alerts direct to your phone – you will see what stocks we buy, what prices we buy them at and what price we intend selling them at
- Practice Trading Risk Free in you personal simulated trading account

Options derive their value from stocks and trade like stocks on exchanges. Options give investors ‘Rights’ to buy or sell shares at some date in the future at agreed prices. Prices on options are a fraction of what it costs to buy or sell shares. Options offer investors flexible ways of reducing risk in their portfolio. Options can also be used for leverage (not recommended). At Share Navigator we use options to reduce risk and increase our chances of making a profit. Most of our option trades have at least an 80% chance of making a profit!

- Learn about High Probability Option Trading
