Trading Fees

Adding yet another realistic element to the competition, each trade will cost the player a small fee to execute. (We'll let you trade for free for the first month though). Help us grow the pool for charity.

Follow the Masters

Over the years, we've been honored to host the world's leading investors and entrepreneurs in our invitation-only Master Class competition. These philanthropists are truly a shining example of generosity. Each Master Class player invests a $10,000 (minimum) each year, and many choose to give more. Their generosity sets an example for us all.
