On investpedia's stock simulator I am ranked at about 226,000th out of approximately 954,200 players. I am within +/- $50 of breaking even, where I started with $10,000 fake money. I am outperforming the S&P 500 almost consistently. Are other players and the market on average really doing as badly as I am interpreting? I am new to investing/stock market simulators. I have only been playing since September 22nd.
