Alpaca (Y Combinator and Spark Capital-backed fintech startup) is excited to announce that Alpaca is hosting its second virtual Electronic Trading Contest, a four-week-long contest where participants compete against each other in a simulated market using the Alpaca Paper Trading feature. There are cash prizes for the winning participants.
After a successful inaugural trading contest last August, we decided to host a second contest with the same objective. Our focus is to expand the community of enthusiastic developers and tech-savvy people around trading. We welcome a variety of trading styles and not just quants algorithmic trading (the TradingView platform is popular among Alpaca users to support algorithmic trading ). Our goal for this event is to allow you to explore the crossroads of technology and trading.
The competition is open to everyone globally, the US and non-US residents. Join our dedicated Slack channel "2nd_trading_competition"
