Preparations are well underway for the 2020 Trading Cup grand final. The atmosphere has been building all year, during our six 1-month long live trading challenges.
You can view all the results of our winners and grand final qualifiers here.
Click play on the video below to get an idea of the Trading Cup grand final's atmosphere and prestige.
Due to circumstances outside of our control, this year's final will be a virtual event, with all competitors joining from their home via a Skype feed.
Date: Friday 5th February 2021
Time: Starts at 8:00pm Sydney time and finishes at 1am on the 6th of February
Venue: Contestants will be joining via Skype connect, with local Australian-based traders joining us in our offices at ACY Tower, 799 Pacific Highway, Chatswood, Sydney.
Each competitor will be trading from their home and will connect via Skype. Think of it as a conference call with ten people joining in.
We'll be crossing to each person via Skype, so we can see them live at their PC while trading.
Our team will host the event from our studios in Sydney, bringing the same level of enthusiasm and prestige similar to our previous events.
Contestants will be given plenty of advance notice, and testing will begin before the event. Our team will be in touch to make sure everything runs smoothly.
Like the last two years of the trading cup, we will be streaming the event live worldwide.
You must book this time into your calendar as you will not want to miss the chance to watch 36 of the world’s best traders trading live.
You can watch the traders live from the comfort of your home or mobile device, no matter where you are.
So long as you have an internet connection, you'll be able to join in on the live trading action and learn from the best of the best.
The live streaming will be set up and available on the homepage on the night here https://www.tradingcup.com/en
We will have several guest speakers on the night, including trading authors and leading fund managers, both locally and worldwide.
Not only will you get to watch some of the best traders in the world trade live, but expert commentary from our guest speakers will provide another level of education during this live event.
Contestants will be looking to out-trade each other for the prestige of becoming the Trading Cup Champion.
In addition to that, the 36 traders will have the opportunity to win a total of $USD90,000 in prizes, split into the prizes shown below. Terms and conditions apply.
We will provide more information closer to Grand Final night.
