One of our partners has implemented a virtual stock trading and research system for The Karachi Stock Exchange, which has been one of the best performing markets in the world in recent years. The system has been used by top universities of the region and provides various facilities for investors, traders, businessmen and students such as:
- Building virtual stock portfolios on actual KSE securities
- Testing trading skills by practicing with virtual money
- Discuss and share ideas using social networking
There are various tools available both for doing fundamental and technical financial research. A Key challenge in the project was a lack of availability of historical KSE data. We developed and maintained our own time series databases for the KSE stocks.
