More about SaxoScenarios

SaxoScenarios is a fun and safe investment simulator.  Experience all the ups and downs of investing during market-shaking events from a safe distance. Choose a mock investment portfolio and try to net a positive risk-adjusted return and create a healthy portfolio, as the biggest news stories break and the markets run wild.

Do you have what it takes to beat the market? With our new trading simulator, SaxoScenarios, you can sharpen your trading skills through times of adversity. Trade through different historic scenarios and see how your investment strategy performs when the volatility index, VIX, spikes.

Not only is SaxoScenarios fun, but it also can make you a better investor, as you trade equities, cryptos, and other asset classes through turbulent times without the risk.

Our stock market simulator is timed to mimic real life trading market movement and conditions. However, the timer stops when you access educational articles mid-game, so you can brush up on topics at your own pace and make informed decisions.

Improve your skills, challenge your friends, and see who can best balance risk and returns in this trading simulator game.

Discover our scenarios

In our trading simulator, you can choose between two historical scenarios. Test your trading skills by reacting to breaking news and try to rebalance your portfolio based on market performance changes. More scenarios to come.

  • Covid-19

    In early 2020, Covid-19 started wreaking havoc across the globe, changing the way we lived and plunging the world economy into crisis. As part of the economic fallout, the stock market plummeted, unemployment rates spiked, large-scale lockdowns created supply chain bottlenecks, and the world was threatened by financial collapse.

    Go back in time and try your hand at navigating the stock market during Covid-19 with our trading simulator. Alternatively, you can learn more about the unique challenges faced by investors during this unprecedented time and how central banks, investors, and consumers responded.

  • Trade wars

    In 2018, the US-China trade war heated up, and investors experienced wild swings in the crypto and commodity markets, metals, and the S&P 500. With ongoing trade imbalances between the two countries, China’s rapid economic growth, and the battle for global economic dominance, markets were volatile and investment growth was reduced in certain areas.

    Participate in mock stock trading with our investment simulator, and navigate market ups and downs during this turbulent year. Alternatively, you can learn more about the unique challenges faced by investors during this time of economic tension, and how investors, consumers, and the two governments responded.
