2009 J.P. Morgan Portfolio Competition   
(30 March - 22 May)         
With 8,269 university students registering from across Australia, the 2009 Competition generated both a record-breaking volume of trade and the highest rate of return in the Competition's history!

The Competition was held for eight weeks from 30 March to 22 May 2009, and saw the top participants double a virtual $200,000 by buying and selling from the ASX300. With share prices updated continuosly, daily local and overseas market news feeds from J.P. Morgan and a weekly market wrap, the 2009 J.P. Morgan Portfolio competition remains the most sophisticated of its kind in the southern hemisphere.

The 2009 Prize Pool of $10,000 was split as follows:
$4,500 for the winner;
$2,000 for 2nd;
$1,500 for 3rd; and
$300 each for 4th to 10th place winners.
Congratulations to the Grand Prize Winner!

"During the competition, I relied mainly on tape reading and technical analysis to trade stocks. I was focusing on scalping a few ticks at a time, with an occasional swing trade based on market timing. It was certainly an extraordinary run-up from the March lows; I did not believe the rally could last but traded it anyway - an important lesson: it's fine to have a view, but trade what the market gives you. Thanks to TradingPlaces and J.P. Morgan for organizing the competition and providing such a wonderful learning opportunity. It's not every decade you get to trade a crash recovery, however brief it may be. "
Congratulations to the Top 10 Prize Winners
