Does anyone know what markets virtual trading is restricted too? I am assuming that since the currency displayed is USD that we can't trade LSE quoted shares.

You can ignore the $ symbol. Quotes from exchanges are in the exchange currency, however, all monies are treated as the same currency in Wealth-Lab.

Since it is not possible to add .L to a symbol on the trade page it would seem we are restricted to virtual trading of US shares.

Do you mean on the "Trade Ticket"? Sure you can.

If not, what's the "trade page"?

Not on my system. Strategies & Trading / Virtual trading / Manage Your Trades - the symbol input box will only accept upper/lower case letters, numbers and punctuation symbols are not accepted.

Oh heck, I thought you were talking about WL5 paper trading. My mistake for not checking which forum we were in.

Right, Virtual Trading is U.S. markets only. Since it's a EOD trading game, it can support only one market.

Under "Manage Your Trades" click the "Show Rules" link right under "New Order"
