Comparison to S&P 500

At the start of the competition the S&P 500 was at 890.35 and at the end of the competition it was 638.38 - a drop of 29%. This is probably why relatively few people finished in the money.
 
Congratulations to all that placed and to all the students who participated despite the heavy work load in the MFE program.

Now Vlad, quick, email me the system so I can make some more money before the edge evaporates!:D

Interactive Brokers Olympiad Checks Are Here!

I got my check in the mail today! I felt like Charlie when he finds the golden ticket in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory!

:dance::cheers:

It was mailed on Friday 5/8/09. I'm pretty close to Greenwich, CT so perhaps some of you near NYC won't get it until Monday or Tuesday.


Oh yes, and it comes with a 1099-MISC form, but there is no withholding.
Happy tax filing!

They deducted 300$ from my prize, and I'm totally pissed off. I'm thinking about counter-attack their offices...
