Vanijya – The finance club of IIM Sambalpur, successfully organised the Virtual Stock trading competition, which has been the most successful competitive event for the academic year 2015-16. The event was conducted in collaboration with ICICI Direct. The platform was based on real time feed from the Indian stock market. Each participant was allocated a basket of 15 lacs INR. To encourage participants to manage more risk, trading was allowed only on equities. Participation was brisk in the start, with majority of participants being net losers, however within two days they started grasping the nitty gritty. Trading mania soon spread over the entire batch and even the non-finance students started participating, taking final count of participants to forty-three out of a batch strength of forty-eight. The competition was so intense that the top five performers list used to change every day. The participants displayed shrewd use of marginal trading and the top performer made 60 lacs INR profit as a quintessential of the investing acumen of the students of IIM Sambalpur. The overall top five performers were felicitated by the honourable director of IIM Indore cum acting director of IIM Sambalpur Dr. T Rishi Krishnan.
