NEW YORK, Feb. 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Webull Financial LLC, an independent, self-directed broker dealer focused on zero commission trading and in-depth market data, is pleased to announce Alex Wong as the winner of its inaugural Webull WeTrader Competition. The five week event allowed traders of all experience levels to participate in a paper trading competition for a chance to win prizes and give back to the community.
The competition, which consisted of two parts – the Weekly Trading Competitions and the Grand Prize Round – gave beginner and experienced traders the opportunity to win prizes ranging from Amazon gift cards to a new car. Those with the top 10 most profitable portfolios at the end of the four week period were invited to compete in a final round to win either a Tesla Model 3 Standard or $40,000 to pay off their student loans. Out of the 10,500 participants, Wong was named winner, and opted to receive the $40,000 cash prize.
“We were thrilled by the number of experienced and amateur traders who participated in our WeTrader Competition, and thank those who took this opportunity to explore new strategies and improve their skills,” said Anthony Denier, CEO of Webull. “Our hope is that our traders now feel more confident, and will be excited to participate again this year.”
As part of the WeTrader Competition, Webull agreed to multiply all positive returns by 0.1% and donate the sum to Shriners Hospitals for Children®. The end amount, which totaled $50,000, will be used by the hospital to provide cutting-edge care for pediatric health needs.
“Shriners is dedicated to offering top quality care to young patients with congenital conditions and complex medical needs, regardless of the families’ ability to pay,” said Ryan West, associate program director, corporate partnerships at Shriners Hospitals for Children®. “Donations help make sure these children receive the care they need, so we are grateful to Webull and the WeTrader Competition participants for their generosity.”
