Prosperity, the world's most elaborate trading challenge

January, 27, 2023

‘Prosperity’ is a new global challenge in which trading firm IMC challenges students from around the world to bring the most prosperity to their virtual island. In this 10-day market simulation, contestants will combine both algorithmic and positional trading skills to bring the most prosperity to their island. The winner will become IMC Global Trading Talent of the Year, win a $25,000 tropical holiday and have an equal amount donated to The Ocean Cleanup in their name.

Find yourself trading wasabi roots, ukuleles and mayberries with penguins and ducks? To meet new talent, IMC has been working on Prosperity’s game mechanics, market simulation and storyline for over a year. This March the first edition will go live.Join the challenge
