The TRADERS’ Cup confirms itself a launching pad for professional traders with the six well known categories Stocks, Futures, Forex, Option, Bonds and Certificates. After the competition a career opportunity can unfold TRADERS’ Cup is also a transparent competition: this is why besides making the public a list of the trades made by the entrants, at the end of the TRADERS’ Cup there will be the award giving in Bologna in January 2018 in an unique event with almost 200 participants. So there will be a 4 months competition (from September 25th 2017 up to December 7th 2017). This is all done under the watchful eyes of the public and the media. Our winners are therefore top traders one cannot mistrust. There is no doubt about their loyalty; they are frank and sincere as true champions must be. Everyone can touch with their own hands, look with their own eyes, with account books kept for everyone to see, and everyone can make sure and be true about who the top traders are. If this were not enough, everyone can make a profit out of the mutual exchange of experience. In fact, giving is only the first step to which taking will follow. But give-and-take asks for honesty, loyalty to one self first, and then to others.
