Play The Markets With Somebody Else's Money - The Trading Game £1000 Blogging Challenge

Share Article

To celebrate its launch, Trading Game is offering its members the chance to enter a blogging challenge. 5 lucky UK members will be given £200 each to try the various trading platforms on offer and blog about their experiences.

With the ongoing credit crunch, people have developed a keener understanding of how they're affected by the world markets. This increased understanding has led many to think 'I could do this better than the pros', and more to act on that notion. However, jumping into the various formats of market trading such as forex trading and spread betting can be both costly and complicated, turning many away from what could be a lucrative side line.

Trading Game is here to help just such people, focusing on providing information to people looking to take their first steps into market trading and gaming. The site is a brand new portal and forum focusing on various popular web trading and gaming platforms aimed at the UK. The focus is on a number of popular and easily accessible forms of web trading such as commodities trading, forex trading, fixed odds financial betting and spread betting, and providing quality information that's jargon free and aimed at beginners through to the more experienced traders.

There are tips, guides, comparisons and reviews of a number of popular providers in the market place for each of the styles of trading or playing the markets, and interested parties can take their chat and queries onto the forum to discuss everything from the latest currency exchange rates to the best strategies for trading gold. The site aims to grow over time and involve new members a lot more and share their contributions as well as that of the editorial team.

As markets like forex trading expand, so will our coverage and reviews. As new spread betting firms crop up, we'll take the time to try them out and tell you what we think. As more mainstream bookmakers add fixed odds financial betting to their portfolio, we'll keep an eye out for great offers and deals. As more forex brokers add commodities trading to the service, we'll help you to separate the oil from the gold. Our aim is to build reliable and accurate reports to make sure that when you play the markets, you play with knowledge on your side.

Of course, as a new brand in the space, why should people join our community? It's a good question, and one we've hopefully answered with our brand new promotion, The Trading Game £1000 Blogging Challenge. We're going to be giving five members at the forum the chance to take £200 of our money and play the markets with it as they see fit. If they want to trade currency with forex trades or take a punt on the price of gold with the commodities trade, it's entirely up to them. In return they will keep us up to date with their progress, and how they use the money in their very own blog at the site.

The aim is to show people how to trade and game the various markets to make profit, and to highlight some of the potential pitfalls for people doing just that. So if some one blows their £200 on a few dodgy forex trades, we should be able to see what not to do as a beginner. As well as the blogs, we want to get people talking about what's going on via the brand new forum. It's a great opportunity for anyone who's not tried market trading and wants to give it a go. Best still, everyone who's selected gets to keep what ever profit they make from the £200 challenge money.

To qualify for the blogging challenge is easy, you must be based in the UK, aged over 18 and be a member of the Trading Game Forum with at least 20 quality posts. Interested parties have until the 13th of September 2009 to qualify at the forum, and the lucky 5 will be drawn at random from those eligible on the 14th of September. The challenge then begins when they start spending their £200 across a number of different services. It should make for some interesting reading. The full terms and conditions of the challenge are available on the main Trading Game site.

If the challenge doesn't take your fancy, then there's other ways to engage with community at Trading Game, whether commenting on the news and special offers stories, or hanging out at the new forum talking about what sort of trading you like to do. Members of the forum can also start their own trading focused blogs, should they wish.

If the challenge does take your fancy, get on over to the forum and sign up, you could be one of the lucky 5 who get to play the markets for free, and keep the profits.
