The IBKR Advantage

  • The IBKR Student Trading Lab is a free online resource for educators looking to blend finance or computer science classwork with real-world trading experiences.
  • Program registration is easy for you and once your account is setup you can send invitations to your students to open their own paper trading accounts.
  • Use Client Portal to manage your account, manage and monitor student accounts, perform account cash equity resets, manage password changes and more.
  • Each student receives a paper trading account with a full complement of trading tools and starts with USD 1,000,000 in paper trading equity. Account equity fluctuates as if trades were executed in the real market.
  • Enhance your curriculum with content with online resources from our Traders' Academy, Traders' Insight daily commentary blog or the IBKR Quant Blog.
