Traders just like you have been competing in the World Cup Trading Championships® since 1983. They compete because it’s easy to enter, fun to participate and potentially rewarding. It’s the ultimate way to test your skills and earn the respect of the trading community.


Real Time, Real Money

The public can watch traders jockeying for a position on a daily-updated World Cup Leader board. When the final results are in, top finishers share in these spoils:

- Magnificent pewter and crystal Bull & Bear trophies that will last a lifetime for the Top Three finishers. World Cup Championship of Futures Trading® trophies are presented during a gala ceremony on the CME Group® trading floor.

- Great prizes from leading vendors including Ninja Trader, Trade Navigator, WorldCupAdvisor.com, Cyber Trading University, CRB Trader and Online Trading Academy.

- Notoriety in press releases, taped interviews and magazine articles.

- The opportunity to join the WorldCupAdvisor.com advisory team.

That last perk might be the most significant because a spot on the World Cup Advisor staff can be a career-changer. Strong World Cup Championship performances produce track records that can be used to promote live trading programs on WorldCupAdvisor, where the public is invited to automatically make the same trades as WCA advisors on a monthly subscription basis.


In both the World Cup Championship of Futures Trading® and World Cup Championship of Forex Trading®, traders use their own strategies. Some day-trade, while others hold their positions for weeks or months. Some use discretionary methods, while others use computerized programs. Each trader does his or her own thing with one goal in mind: Post the highest possible net return by the end of the competition. Account minimums are $10,000 in the futures competition and $5,000 in the forex event.

Free Entry

There is no entry fee in either 2015 event. As per the official rules for the competitions, traders can enter at any time during the competition period but must make a minimum of 10 round-turn trades of any quantity to qualify for awards and prizes.

What does it take to win?

It can vary dramatically from year to year. In 1987, Larry Williams won the year-long World Cup Championship of Futures Trading® with an astounding 11,376% net return. In 2001, a modest 53% return captured the crown.
