November Knockout Stock Trading Challenge

Another Month, Another Chance to Win BIG

We hope you’re ready to compete. There’s real money on the line, hundreds of competitors, and some more stock picking heavyweights to compete with!

For our November Knockout, WE challenge YOU to beat TWO stock picking services: The Motley Fool and Jim Cramer’s Action Alerts Plus. If you remember last month’s contest, you’ll remember a very similar challenge. But this time, you have more than just the Motley Fool to face.

If you’re confused, that’s okay. Let’s break it down for a second.

See, we have two main goals here at Wall Street Survivor. 1. To make sure anyone and everyone feels empowered and educated to start investing. And 2. To support you along your investing journey by providing you the best education, tools, and resources possible.

We run these monthly contests to encourage competition, in a risk free environment, that makes investing less scary and more fun! We also often theme the competitions around tools and resources that we know can help you along your investing journey, tools like The Motley Fool’s stock picking services!

We offer up cash prizes in these contests because we’re so passionate about you learning how to invest, trade, research stocks, build portfolios, etc. And if you decide you want additional resources to help you along your investing journey, we try to point you in the right direction!
