Simulation Package: Market Analysis (information)

Process data, interpret news and analyse the price development.
This simulation mimics the fundamentals of the trading environment and market activity. Focus is only on relevant aspects so that you cannot be distracted by (currently) irrelevant aspects. The modular setup of this simulation allows therefore for gradually grasping one concept or process after another, making it very suitable for non-traders. Actually, it is suitable for all professionals with a role in (or relating to) the wholesale commodity or energy markets. It is very suitable for non-traders as terminology is covered on the go, thereby intuitively embedding concepts and processes.


The aim of this simulation is learn how prices respond to news.


You act in the role of analyst; you are not supposed to act in the market. Moreover, you are unable to transact.


See what happens to the market price; explain the development.
Interpret news and see how the price responds.
Watch the price also fluctuate when no news appears; this may be due to activity of (other) market participants.
Dynamics indicates price volatility; form your opinion about the price volatility level.
Fundamental analysis is related to the incoming news items, while technical analysis can be performed by considering the price chart.
