Press Release (ePRNews.com) - SYDNEY, Australia - Jan 28, 2016 - The announcement comes ahead of the February 1st launch of Million Dollar Trader, a live trading competition which will see traders compete for high value prizes, including a trading account with a proprietary allocation of US$1,000,000.
AxiTrader, through the AxiSelect program, currently offers a structured pathway for successful traders to turn their hobby into a profession by providing ongoing funding and mentoring. This program has a natural synergy with HC Technologies who specialize in investing proprietary capital in early career traders by providing seed funding for trading global futures (FX, fixed income, equity index and commodity markets) and cash markets (FX and fixed income).
The partnership will see expanded opportunities for strong performers in the Million Dollar Trader competition. As well as four winners of the competition being allocated over $1.45 million across four trading accounts from AxiTrader, participants will have a once in a lifetime opportunity to showcase their skills to HC Technologies executives and pitch for a role as a professional trader.
Whilst HC Technologies can give no guarantees that participants or competition winners will be handed a job opportunity at HC Technologies, for talented traders, this is an extremely rare and exciting opportunity for them to exhibit their trading skills for a potential relationship with the Company.
Says Alex Mackinnon, General Manager at AxiTrader, “To have two respected global firms join together in this way, to support aspiring traders and potentially provide institutional level resources and expertise, is a unique and substantial opportunity.
“With the huge interest in online trading these days, we’re seeing a lot of talent out there in the retail space, so we’re really pleased to be able to be a part of helping some of those traders reach the next level. We also greatly appreciate HC Technologies wanting to be involved, offering up a great opportunity and for sharing our positive attitude towards the growth and development of our industry.
“I’m looking forward to seeing how the traders fare over the course of the competition and where their trading journey takes them.”
