I require a share trading simulator game, web-based using PHP and MySQL.
The stock data will be derived from Yahoo! free data and it will be based on all American stock exchanges, also needed code o download data from Yahoo finance.
The features of the software will be:
- Accounts and login
- Prices of 'world' of stocks updated every 1 minute on a cron script during trading hours (10am-4pm)
- Buying and Selling based on current funds during set hours
- Current Portfolio
- Trade History
- Multiple Competitions
- Multiple order types (long orders, short selling, limt orders, stop loss orders, buy to cover orders) all available for day or good till cancel
- Graph of each player's capital
- Admin Section (where start/end of competitions can be set, starting cash and other program settings)
This needs to have a simple interface as it will be used by students and teachers, I like the way Virtualstockexchange work and would love a similar interface just like theirs.
