Welcome to C-Trade Fantasy

About C-Trade Fantasy

C-TRADE Fantasy challenge proudly sponsored by Nedbank is an edutainment initiative targeting Zimbabweans, especially the youths with an aim to impact knowledge on investment in securities and create a culture of saving and investing in youth. It further aims to enhance financial management and entrepreneurial skills among the Zimbabwean youth and create a sense of ownership, loyalty and association by reaching out to the youths and by creating a unifying factor.

Further, our capital market has suffered a domination by institutional and foreign investors at the expense of individuals. Both individual and institutional investors play a critical role in unlocking the vast opportunities hidden in capital markets all waiting to be exploited. The C-TRADE Fantasy is a means to demystify the notion that investing in the capital markets is a reserve for the financially muscular and elite. The previously marginalised individual investors can save, invest and earn through investment products in the capital markets.

The C-TRADE Fantasy also creates an avenue for educating the youth on prudent processes of investment decision-making and risk management.

The C-TRADE Fantasy competition

  • On a monthly basis portfolios are ranked based on Portfolio values; ranking results will be published on C-TRADE social media pages.

Time in force is a special instruction used when placing a trade to indicate how long an order will remain active before it is executed or expires. These options enable traders to be more specific about the time parameters surrounding a given order.

Day orders are canceled if the trade does not execute by the close of the trading day. Often times, these are the default order type for many brokerage accounts.
Good-Till-Canceled orders will continue to be effective until it executes or is canceled. Some common exceptions to the rule include stock splits, distributions, account inactivity, modified orders, and during quarterly sweeps.
Immediate or Cancel Orders-are canceled if the entire order does not execute as soon as it becomes available. Often times, this is used to avoid purchasing shares in multiple blocks at different prices and ensure an entire order executes at a single price.
Good Till Day-The GTD (Good-till-Date/Time) time in force lets you select an expiration date and time up until which an order will continue to work. A day order automatically expires at the end of the regular trading session if it hasn’t been filled
