2010 J.P. Morgan Portfolio Competition   
(22 March - 14 May)         
With over 8800 university students registering from across Australia, the 2010 Competition generated the highest average rate of return in the Competition's history!

The Competition was held for eight weeks from 22 March to 14 May 2010, and saw our top participant make more than a 25% increase on the base virtual equity of $200,000 by buying and selling from the ASX300. With share prices updated continuously, comprehensive stock information and weekly market wraps, the J.P. Morgan Portfolio competition remains the most sophisticated of its kind in the southern hemisphere.

The 2010 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!

"My strategy of creating a very high risk portfolio was achieved by holding a small number of companies with volatile prices, leveraging significantly and investing in a single industry to increase the beta of my portfolio. After deciding to focus on the energy sector I identified a list of potential companies and bought when the share price fell strongly relative to the market. I sold after positive news announcements or days of relatively strong performance. I later shifted my funds to the metals sector just prior to the announcement of the Resource Super Profits Tax. My portfolio value decreased significantly, however, I continued to buy as prices fell and in the final days was able to overtake the competition leaders who had converted their positions to cash. I thank TradingPlaces for providing a fantastic platform for students to explore their interest in the share market and the opportunity to network with industry professionals."
Congratulations to the Top 10 Prize Winners
