Some of the top websites include Wall Street Survivor, Investopedia Stock Simulator and Questrade amongst many others.

Young Money provides a very accurate real world trading experience. It computes virtual commissons that are taken on each trade and limits market trading hours.

How The Market Works is also owned by Wall Street Survivor. In addition to stocks and indexes, traders can also experiment with Forex portfolios, penny stocks, mutual funds and short selling.
5.Investopedia Stock Simulator
Investopedia is one of the largest financial education websites around. Its Stock Simulator provides users with the opportunity to connect with other traders around the world and to see how they trade.
With Questrade, you can trade stocks, options, FX contracts and CFDs with a $50,000 or $500,000 play money account.
According to ChartGame,“the computer will present you with a random historical stock chart of an actual large cap (S&P 500) security, without telling you which company and time period the chart represents.” Following this, you can select new days of price action and choose whether to buy or sell.
