Past 100K Challenge Results


The 3K-100K Challenge Started as a friendly contest between brothers. After a fun, lively, and profitable first round, the challenge was repeated a number of times to some very incredible results:

2 - 100K Success

1 - 47K Gain

1 - 19K Gain

4 - No Gains

As the challenges went on, we had more and more people asking what the daily results were, if they could watch, and if we could explain the rationale behind our trades. As a result, TraderMinute was born.

Please feel free to browse the results and trades of previous TraderMinute 3K-100K Challenges.
