CME Group Trading Challenge
CME Group's Trading Challenge is a complimentary four-week electronic trading competition where teams of undergraduate and graduate students can trade a variety of CME Group products from multiple asset classes in a simulated trading environment on a real-time professional trading platform provided by CQG.
Top ranking students will be eligible for cash prizes and exclusive CME Group experiences.
This annual competition has grown each year - with 200 schools from 30 countries and nearly 500 teams competing in 2016. The Trading Challenge is a unique chance for students to learn hands-on techniques for trading futures. Teams must consist of 3 to 5 members from the same university and each must elect a student leader. Teams can participate on a student-led team or in cooperation with a faculty advisor. Advisors will have early registration access to register their teams. Please note, advisors are not permitted to participate as a member of the team during the Challenge and are ineligible to receive a prize if their team is a winner. .... "
