Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 01, 2013
When Jack Bouroudjian hands out pewter and crystal Bull & Bear trophies April 5, he will place one in the hands of a man who is quite familiar with the hefty statues. Italian trader Andrea Unger will receive a first-place trophy for an unprecedented fourth time on the strength of his 82.8% net return, achieved in just three months during 2012. Unger’s previous victories came in yearlong competitions in 2008 (672%), 2009 (115%) and 2010 (240%).
“It’s a double thrill,” says Unger. “To beat top traders from around the world is unbelievably satisfying, and to receive the trophy on the floor during the trading session is very exciting.”
World Cup Championship events have run continuously since 1983. Previous winners include legendary trader Larry Williams, who posted a record 11,376% return in 1987. That was the year that Williams turned a $10,000 initial investment into $1,147,607.
