RIT Client Application Simulator

Rotman Interactive Trader (RIT) application is an order-driven market simulator (which allows users to transact financial securities with each other on a real-time basis) plus a sequence of RIT cases. Each RIT case focuses on the risks and opportunities associated with particular securities or strategies.

To see how RIT works, you can access the RIT Client Application Demo running LT3 24/7 on Rotman's server. But for more cases, you can access the RIT Client Application Server in-person in the Lab.

To access the RIT simulator see instructions here.


The Rotman International Trading Competition (RITC) is an annual event that brings teams of students and their faculty advisors from universities worldwide to participate in a unique 3-day simulated market challenge.

RITC 2024 marked the 20th anniversary of this trading competition, currently the world's largest.
