2021 Intercollegiate Trading Competition

121 graduate students are competing to grow portfolios of $5 million USD in simulated currency

Over the spring semester, students apply what they're learning and make trades within paper trading accounts provided by Interactive Brokers (NYSE: IBKR). The accounts give students access to the same user-interface and features used by professional traders.

Student traders are ranked by the risk-adjusted return earned by their portfolios—as measured by Sharpe Ratio. See below for current standings. Competition ends at 4:00 p.m. EST (-4:00 UTC), Friday, May 7.

The event is hosted by Duke FinTech, in collaboration with the Student Trading Lab at Interactive Brokers.
