Stock Trading Competition

Each year members of the Citadel FMA participate in a virtual stock trading competition. Citadel students compete amongst themselves to identity the top student portfolio manager! Each participant starts with an initial amount of $100,000 in virtual money which they can invest in U.S. securities any way they want. Participants in the virtual stock trading competition often discuss their strategies and views about the market in the weekly club meetings.

This year's (2014-2015) competition will start in September (exact date TBD). However, it is never too late as students can enter the competition any time during the Fall semester. The competition concludes on April 2015 with the announcement of the Citadel's top investment managers! The monetary awards are as follows:

First place: $300

Second place: $200

Third place: $100
