What you need to know about the trading contest of the year
This November, we’re bringing you the chance to show us what you’ve got and go head-to-head with other traders in our demo trading competition. The competition kicks off on November 15, 2020 and over the course of the following five days, you’ll be aiming to make as much (virtual) money as possible by trading your demo account.
The best part? There are three real cash prizes up for grabs!
1st place: $5,000
2nd place: $2,500
3rd place: $1,000
How does the trading competition work?
The trading competition will take place in a virtual environment using a Nadex demo account. All participants will start with $10,000 so it’s a level playing field. To win a prize, you need to place at least 25 trades over the course of the week, and be one of the top three most profitable traders in the contest. It’s as simple as that.
