Think you’ve got what it takes to predict the daily close of the energy markets? Put your skills to the test and compete against other traders for the grand prize. You’ll be given $100 in simulated buying power to purchase Event Contracts for $CL_F or $NG and make a prediction on the daily close. The top three traders with the highest account value at market settlement will secure prizes and earn major bragging rights.
Challenge opens for participation on Tuesday 10/31 at 11:30 AM CT and ends on Tuesday 10/31 at 1:30 PM CT. Winners will be determined by 5PM CT once futures markets have final settlements.
Each trader will be given simulated buying power of $100 to place their trades (using event contracts) to predict the close of the Energy Futures market(s) of their choosing. Traders may not exit out of positions once entered.
Each trade prediction that is correct will be worth $20 in the total account value, and each trade that is incorrect will be worth 0. The goal of each trader is to have the total account value by the end of the competition by predicting the market close correctly.
