#### Abstract

We investigate contact magnetic curves in the real special linear group of degree $2$. They are geodesics of the Hopf tubes over the projection curve. We prove that periodic contact magnetic curves in $\mathrm{SL}_2 \mathbb{R}$ can be quantized in the set of rational numbers. Finally, we study contact homogeneous magnetic trajectories in $\mathrm{SL}_2 \mathbb{R}$ and show that they project to horocycles in $\mathbb{H}^2 (-4)$.
