SA’S top stu­dent trader?

Finweek English Edition - - SMART MONEY -

THE AN­NUAL Ned­bank Cap­i­tal Traders Tro­phy com­pe­ti­tion has re­turned for a fifth year, invit­ing the coun­try’s most ex­cep­tional univer­sity stu­dents to com­pete for the cov­eted ti­tle of “SA’s top stu­dent trader”.

The world­wide com­pe­ti­tion, which in­cludes par­tic­i­pants from over 20 coun­tries, takes place in a sim­u­lated vir­tual trad­ing room where stu­dents take po­si­tions and quote prices to their clients while be­ing as­sessed on their prof­itabil­ity, risk man­age­ment and mar­ket-mak­ing skills.

Reg­is­tra­tions for the on­line qual­i­fi­ca­tion round opened 1 April. Those se­lected will re­ceive in­struc­tions and per­form a dry run be­fore trad­ing within a 50-minute pe­riod. The top per­form­ers in the qual­i­fi­ca­tion rounds will be in­vited to com­pete for the prize as the top trader for their univer­sity. The top trader from each univer­sity will go on to com­pete in the na­tional fi­nals held at the Jo­han­nes­burg Stock Ex­change. The win­ner will sub­se­quently go on to rep­re­sent the coun­try as a con­tes­tant in the Traders Tro­phy global com­pe­ti­tion.

En­tries for the 2013 South African leg of the com­pe­ti­tion are now open. To reg­is­ter, visit the Traders Tro­phy com­pe­ti­tion page at www.trader­stro­
