Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 16, 2009
Here is a beta test gone wrong.
Strategy Runner launched its suite of trading competition last week, albeit, prematurely. The launch was intended to be a 'soft launch' for friends and family to test drive the live trading competition, but after a group of traders found the trading competition hidden Web site, and signed up, it was clear that the company had to fast-track the trading competition launch.
The original trading competition was only intended for company employees, friends and family. The prize was set for pizza dinners. Anna Becker, Strategy Runner's Trading Tournament organizer said, "We expected only 50 traders to participate, but after the second day of registration, we had topped 150." Mrs. Becker continued, "Clearly there [is] something really contagious in our trading tourneys when even uninvited traders started inviting their friends to play. This proves that [the] public wants an opportunity to trade with a simple trading tool, fast real-time action with live results posting and chat, compressed within a few hours with real cash prizes."
"Strategy Runner's trading tournament (http://www.strategyxchange.com/Tournaments/T1/index.htm) is intended to ignite the excitement around trading, giving an easy opportunity for traders to learn, compare trading skills, test-drive our professional trading platform. This beta test clearly shows that traders love the tournaments. Traders come alive through the short one day competitions, live results postings and talkback forums. We will collaborate with our broker and educational partners to tailor tournaments to meet their needs." added Jake Levant, Vice President of Strategy Runner, "We invite our partners to experience the excitement for themselves and offer it to their prospects."
