Do you want a chance to win a million dollars just by picking stocks with play money? You’re in luck because you can do just that in a new online portfolio challenge. CNBC has regular contests but this one is the biggest ever. The rules are simple. Starting on March 5th you will be given $1,000,000 of play money in your portfolio. You can then buy and sell stocks within that portfolio with the goal of making as much money as possible during the ten weeks of the contest. After the ten weeks is up you move into a playoff with the top ten finalists with a brand new $1,000,000 portfolio to determine the winner over the next two weeks. Not only is there a one million dollar grand prize, but each week they are giving away $10,000 as well.
- Grand Prize: $1,000,000
- 10 Weekly Prizes: $10,000
- 50 First Prizes: Free Year of CNBC Plus
You don’t have to be a stock picking genius or even make a ton of trades every day to win. A couple solid selections could land you in the winner’s circle. At the very least this is a great opportunity to test your trading strategies with fake money to see how well you do. And who knows, you may walk away with some real money to invest. Register today for your chance at $1,000,000.
