How to Play:

 

  1. Create an account and verify your identity… This takes less than a minute!
  2. Head to the PRACTICE tab and challenge one of our Trading Bots! These bots trade specific strategies – some easy, some difficult. Defeating each bot earns you valuable tokens that you can use to enter huge prize games!
  3. Now that you’re getting the idea, check out a video or two at the LEARN tab. Here you can learn effective, easy-to-use trading strategies that can help you win big – these strategies are what the pros use!
  4. When you’re ready, compete against players around the World in the COMPETE tab or enter a FEATURED EVENT. Some are free, some cost tokens, and some require cash entry.
  5. When you enter an event, the game will start when the countdown hits zero – be ready to play! You’ve been given a $100,000 virtual trading account to start each game.
  6. The trader(s) who have the highest account balance (equity) when the final balances are calculated will be declared the winners! In the event of a tie, the prize for that position is split and distributed equally.
  7. Immediately after winning, any prize money will be credited to your TradeOff™ account!
  8. If you’ve won a physical prize, we’ll reach out and ask you where we should send your new stuff!

 

Other Helpful Stuff:

  3. Your Buying Power determines the amount of shares that you can buy or sell.
  4. At the end of the event, your virtual equity will account for any open position profits or losses (positions not closed).
  5. TradeOff™ reserves the right to correct prize payouts in the event of cheating or game errors.

Official Rules:

 

  1. Once you sign up and pay for an event, the game will start when the countdown timer hits zero, whether you have joined or not. You can join the event up to 30 minutes before the game begins; however, please note that joining after the game has started is a disadvantage to you.
  2. You can use any trading indicators and drawing tools that the charting platform provides, and you can use as many as you want!
  3. Your Buying Power determines the amount of shares that you can buy or sell. The maximum number of shares you can sell and the maximum number of shares you can buy are the same, meaning that if you don’t have enough buying power to click “buy”, you don’t have enough buying power to click “sell”.
  4. Each time you click ‘Buy’ or ‘Sell,” you buy (long) or sell (short) 100 shares of the stock.
  5. At the end of the event, your virtual equity will account for any open position profits or losses (positions not closed).
  6. The trader(s) who have the highest virtual equity as shown on the event results page win the event. In the event of a tie, the prize for that position are split and equally distributed.
  7. Immediately after you win an event, prize money will be credited to your TradeOff™ account. TradeOff™ reserves the right to correct prize payouts in the event of cheating or game errors.
  8. Any cheating is strictly prohibited. If any trader is found to have cheated in any way, TradeOff™ reserves the right to ban them from future events and reallocate past winnings. Please refer to our Terms of Use.
