$7,500 for the winner;
$5,000 for 2nd;
$2,500 for 3rd; and

Congratulations to the Grand Prize Winner!

University of Queensland

"I used company announcements coupled with technical analysis to assist with stock selection. I chose resource companies which appeared economical and had commenced an upward trend. Towards the end of the competition I was motivated to maintain my lead and continued to hedge my portfolio against my competitors' by taking positions in their successful stocks.
Before the competition I had no idea what I really wanted to do career wise. Winning the competition gave me the opportunity to get an insight into the daily operations of J.P. Morgan. This has finally given me a clear directional goal of where I'd like to end up a couple of years from now, the trading floor of a bulge bracket investment bank."
