Abstract

In this paper we describe a portfolio management activity using an online virtual simulator www.labolsavirtual.com over finance subjects related to financial markets, equities, currencies and commodities, with spot transactions and derivatives. Our experience is that this activity leads to greater student involvement with the subject, enhancing the capabilities for teamwork, searching and interpret financial information, using tools and defending their investment decisions.
