In a bid to inspire ordinary South Africans to trade on the exchange, the Johannesburg Stock Exchange JSE has launched the first JSE Virtual Trading Game - an online trading competition which simulates a real trading environment and allows participants a risk-free opportunity to trade shares.
The JSE recognises the role it has to play in promoting financial literacy as well as growing retail investment on the JSE. These include Power Hour sessions, investment education clubs, MyJSE Investment Day as well as free public seminars about investing.

The virtual trading game is open to members of the public with the exception of high school and full time university students and financial professionals who either trade or advise the public on financial products.
