Suffolk students test their trading skills and compete against students from other colleges and universities around the country during the annual thinkorswim Challenge. They build real-world experience and compete for real cash for trading.
The four-week competition, hosted by TD Ameritrade U, is open to undergraduate and graduate students and runs from October 12 to November 7, 2015. Students are trained to use TD Ameritrade’s thinkorswim trading platform, which simulates the real-world market. Then in teams of 3-4, they competed for a chance to win great prizes:
- First Prize: $30,000 for your school + iPad Air (for each member) + $3,000 in a brokerage account (for each member)
- Second Prize: $20,000 for your school + iPad Mini (for each member) + $2,000 in a brokerage account (for each member)
- Third Prize: $10,000 for your school + $100 Amazon gift card (for each member) + $1,000 in a brokerage account (for each member)
