  1. Could somebody mention a few good reputable trading contests out there?

    Thanks a lot!
  2. None! they exist to promote a brokerage or other service. Also, no one cares if you win one, as 9 of your ten accounts in the contest could blow up. The only way to win a contest is to take ridiculous risks.

    Anyone promoting services claiming to have won a trading contest is basically saying "I cannot do this in real life, but I returned 10,000% in one of ten accounts".

    They would use real returns otherwise.

    If you want to eventually run a hedge fund, etc., get your real returns audited. You need to set this up before a period in which you trade, not after the fact. No one knows how many accounts you had otherwise.
  3. Day trade ES.
    It is the only contest in town.
    Use real money.
