Hi ilikeread, Do you have the complete final results of the contest? Interested to see what was the final profits( or losses) of the contestants individually and combined.

Don't have the exact numbers but the final combined loss was around $2,200 for the seven 90-minute sessions (trading 2 markets with up to a 3-lot). I believe Tim had the only profitable session in round 1 where he made about $100 after comms - he lost $ in the semis and won the finals by losing the least amount.

Not a trading friendly environment with a couple silly rules and too short a session, but results are results and with the exception of one semi-final match (on rollover day) there was good to very good trading.

Much is made of the fact that these are "educators" but if 8 of the top posters on any active forum competed and the above results were used as the baseline, I would take the "under".
