TO ENROLL FOR THE SPRING 2021 TRADING COMPETITION:

CLICK ON THE TAB "ENROLLMENT" AND FILL UP THE FORM

This spring 2021, the competition will take place from Tuesday February 2 to Friday April 30.

It is open to all Queens College Students.

You can enroll at any time.

Cash Prize for the winners.

Important Rule 1: You cannot trade IPOs: no pre-orders and no trade the first day.

You can start to trade it only the second day and after.

If you do not respect that rule your account will be eliminated and you will have to start a new account.

Important Rule 2: You have to close all your positions the last day of trading Friday April 30 otherwise your account will be eliminated.

Important Rule 3: You cannot short for more than $500,000.

Assuming that you start to short, you cannot short more than $500,000 but you can short up to $500,000.

For example, if you shorted for $400,000 only, you could short later but for no more than $100,000.

Of course, when you cover your short and the amount you shorted is now less than $500,000 then you can short again, the total of short not exceeding $500,000.
