Simulator Guide

The contest is a great way to experience the asymmetrical opportunities options offer, trading in a simulated environment without the very real risk of losing actual capital.

I would highly recommend this contest to anyone interested in finance as it is a great opportunity to learn, discover, and deploy option strategies while getting a great chance to win some extra money. I would give the contest a 5/5 as the overall experience was fantastic.
