You can simply go into your paper trading competition account to start paper trading, or search for the stocks you want to trade, tap paper trade, and select your paper trading competition account (Financial Literacy US Stocks Paper Trade account).


V. Rules

1. This competition is for US stock trading only. After successful registration, participants will open a competition paper trading account for one market with initial assets of US$100,000 each and will be ranked according to their total P/L%.

2. The trading product for this competition is limited to US stocks only. Other types of investment products are not tradable.

3. US stock market trading hours: 9:30 to 16:00 ET.

4. The competition supports dividends and bonus issues, but not new IPO subscriptions, rights shares, or additional issuance. (The dividends and bonus issues are virtual).

5. To ensure the professionalism of the competition, the competition will restrict trading stocks below US$5. You may sell stocks when they fall below US$5, but you may not buy them.

6. To ensure the fairness and reasonableness of the competition, the maximum number of orders per trading day is 100 (including cancellations and order changes). In order to avoid asset spikes caused by heavy holdings in a single volatile stock, the position limit for a single stock (at the time of purchase) is 40% of total assets. However, this rule does not apply to situations where the maximum position in a single stock exceeds 40% due to stock price movements.

7. The quotes of the paper trading system are not exactly the same as the real stock market. Data for the competition is based on the paper trading system.

8. If a listed company is delisted for any reason and the participant's account holds a virtual stock of that company, the participant will not be able to paper trade that stock on the subsequent competition day, and the system will credit the virtual funds to the participant's account on the second working day at the last closing price of that stock.

9. If any participant obtains revenue through deceptive means or loopholes, he/she will be disqualified from this competition.

10. Each user can only participate in the competition with one account. If any participant is found to have used any means to operate on multiple accounts, he/she will be disqualified from this competition.

11. Only one moomoo user account can be used to participate in the competition on all platforms. The reward will be sent to users' brokerage account in the form of a cash coupon. The paper trading competition performance is synced on all mobile, desktop apps, and web platforms.

12. The paper trading system of this competition is offered by Moomoo Technologies Inc. Securities are offered through Moomoo Financial Inc. Member FINRA/SIPC. The commission fee and other fees are based on the real market. In case of minor deviations from the real market, the paper trading system shall prevail.
