What is a StockGro PrepZone

Users in their learning journey to trade and invest in the Stock Market might want to compare their progress and proficiency in learning how to pick the right stocks and build a portfolio efficiently.

To facilitate this, just like any school or college conducting tests and examination, StockGro provides learning opportunities in their PrepZones for users to join and test their proficiency for investing in different asset classes in the markets in real time.

To join PrepZones, you must have a valid email address and phone number. Only those Users who have successfully registered on StockGro in accordance with the procedure shall be eligible to experience the Prepzones.

In a PrepZone, you will be provided virtual currency which you can use to select virtual stocks and build a virtual stock portfolio, and help you engage with other learners to build proficiency in investing and trading. These PrepZones are held daily, weekly and monthly.The PrepZones are free for users to join, i.e. a User does not have to pay any money to StockGro to join any such PrepZones.

In order to register for the PrepZones, you are required to:

  • Enter your name
  • Enter your mobile number. 
  • You will receive an OTP; please input that to move forward. 
  • Enter your 4-digit PIN to set up your account 
  • Confirm that you agree and shall abide by these Terms and Conditions.

Types of PrepZones

  1. Daily: This PrepZone program is held on a daily basis, starts in the morning and ends in the evening, and the best performers are announced when the PrepZone ends by end of the day.
  2. Weekly: This PrepZone program is held on a weekly basis, starts on Monday morning and ends on Friday evening, and the best performers are announced when the PrepZone ends on Friday evening.
  3. Monthly: This PrepZone program is held on a monthly basis, starting on the first working day of every month and ends on the last working day of every month, and the best performers are announced when the PrepZone ends on the last working day of every month.

PrepZone Rules

  • 'Model Portfolio' is for the User to build their long-term virtual portfolio and test their strategies.
  • 'Model Portfolio' cannot be used for joining in any of the Preps.
  • StockGro provides two sets of virtual PrepZone portfolios – Portfolio Alpha and Portfolio Beta.
  • User can only join up-to two Preps at one time with the two PrepZone portfolios.
  • PrepZone Portfolio(s) will automatically reset after the results are announced and you can reuse the portfolio to join a new Prep and start building your new virtual portfolio by linking it with the new Prep.
  • One virtual PrepZone portfolio can be associated with only one Prep.
  • In order to join a PrepZone, the User will have to link their available virtual PrepZone portfolio with the Prep
  • Each User has to re-build a new virtual portfolio each time when entering a new Prep to be eligible for getting a rank.
  • Users must adhere to the virtual budget while creating their virtual portfolio.
  • The User has the discretion on what stock(s) the User wants to add to a virtual portfolio
  • For each Prep, Users will refer to and shall abide by the PrepZone rules
  • At the end of the affixed time period of a Prep (e.g., in a weekly Prep, at the end of the week), Users are ranked according to the absolute value of their virtual portfolios in relation to each other.
  • The value of the virtual stocks depends upon the performance of their real-world counterparts in the stock market, but the distribution of rewards is not linked to such real-world prices.
  • Each prep can be distinct from other, and predetermined amounts are awarded to designated ranks. For example, if the total rewards is INR 10,000(Rupees Ten Thousand) for a Prep, it may be distributed in a given ratio (e.g., 40:30:20:10, amongst the top four performers in a given Prep (i.e., Rank 1 gets INR 4,000 (Rupees Four Thousand), Rank 2 gets INR 3,000 (Rupees Three Thousand) etc.).
  • Therefore, even if all the Users get negative virtual returns on their virtual portfolios, the rewards are distributed according to which User has performed the best relative to others.

Therefore, the value of the rewards awarded to best performing participants does not correlate to the value of the actual stocks in the stock market, and neither the virtual stocks nor virtual portfolios amount to ‘securities’ or ‘derivatives’ under Indian law. 

Users who are best performers and their ranks in a Prep (“Rank Holders”) will be announced at the end of the Prep. The rewards will be distributed in a ratio and manner pre-published by us, and disclosed to Prep Users, on StockGro from time to time. StockGro shall not be liable to pay any rewards if it is discovered that the Rank Holders have not abided by these Terms and Conditions and other rules and regulations in relation to the use of StockGro.

StockGro's Prep require specific skills and abilities imparted by StockGro to its users through educational content and access to educators and fund managers teaching and sharing investment strategies.

User skillsets include basic finance knowledge, ability to understand fundamental analysis, judgment, strategy and multi-disciplinary knowledge, training, adherence to a virtual budget, and calculation and mathematics.

By joining in Preps and using StockGro, each User acknowledges and agrees that he/she is in the process of learning the skillsets for investing in Stocks and building the right portfolio on StockGro and has no correlation to their real-world transactions.
