Investopedia ( is one of the Internet's largest sites devoted entirely to investing education. The site was started by Cory Janssen and Cory Wagner in June 1999 at the height of the internet stock boom as an unbiased source to learn about investing. Based in the city of Edmonton in Alberta, Canada, the site has grown to become a well-respected source for financial information.

The website had its beginning as a financial dictionary, separating itself from other dictionaries by offering the "Investopedia Says" feature—a plain English interpretation of hard to understand terms and concepts. The site now averages over 2 million Page views a month and is home to over 1,500 articles, 5,300 dictionary entries, and 750 pages of tutorials on nearly every aspect of finance and investing. Along with educational content, Investopedia also offers interactive tools such as its popular stock market simulator, which allows individuals to set up a brokerage account with imaginary money and trade publicly traded stocks and options on the NYSE, NASDAQ, and other stock exchanges.
