CHICAGO, Ill., Aug. 1, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - Trading Advantage, a global leader in trading education, launched the "20 for Twenty" contest today, potentially giving away up to $20 million to contestants for guessing the closing price of the Dow Jones Industrial Average.
Both innovative and relevant to Trading Advantage's core business of financial education, the "20 for Twenty" contest allows contestants to guess online the closing price of the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) on October 10th. The twenty people with the closest guesses to the closing value of the DJIA on October 10, 2014 will instantly win $1,000 each. These 20 winners qualify to enter the next round, where they will be eligible to win $1 million if they correctly guess what the closing value of the DJIA will be on November 10, 2014.
"Teaching thousands of students how to trade over the past 20 years has been extremely rewarding," said Larry Levin, president and founder of Trading Advantage. "There's nothing quite like the thrill of making money in the markets. We wanted to create that trading type of excitement with our 20 for Twenty contest."
Contest entry is free and open to anyone worldwide 18 years or older. The deadline for all entries to be submitted is September 10th, 2014. Trading Advantage is hoping to receive as many entries as possible from contestants across the globe. "It would be amazing to have one person make a million dollars as a result of this contest -- twenty people making a million dollars would be unbelievable," Levin said.
