Virtual Stock Exchange is a web application, which gives people a chance to try trading stocks without investing real money.
Virtual Stock Exchange is available in English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese and Russian. Default language can be set by an administrator, but users can choose their own interface language. All translations and text messages can be easily modified.
The application is fully responsive, which means it is displayed perfectly on every device irrespective of its screen size. It also works well in all major browsers, including Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer (starting from version 10) and others.
USD, GBP, EUR, CHF, CAD, AUD, SEK, DKK, INR, BRL or JPY can be selected as the default account currency. When trading stocks, which are nominated in a currency different from the user account currency, foreign exchange rate is applied automatically.
Virtual Stock Exchange is built using a modern technology stack (PHP MVC framework, MySQL, jQuery, Semantic UI), so it will run smoothly on almost any server. PHP 5.5+ and MySQL 5.5+ are required, a shared server environment will work, but VPS or dedicated server is recommended.
