An Interesting contest is taking place on DayTradingRadio.
“John Kurisko, aka DayTraderRockStar of DayTradingRadio.com, is announcing the first live “Win RockStar’s Money” event.” This event, part of a series of head-to-head competitions known as Ultimate Trader Showdown, gives a trader ability to trade live against John, and win real money if he wins.
Why I think this competition is great: 1) Real accounts (so all the psychological pressures are present), and 2) the event is broadcasted live(!), which means there’s complete accountability.
Honestly, I’m tired of listening to analysts on TV who say one thing, and then completely opposite the next. This takes guts. Not only are you on the air for 8 hours, with thousands of eyes on you, but you can lose money if the guest does better than you. Many people on the internet are all talk, and rarely do I see someone putting up real money in a competition like this. Cool!
From the press release about the event: “If the contestant beats RockStar, then they keep half of the profits that they racked up during the match.” You can read the entire press release here if this event interests you.
