A free to join contest with attractive prizes to be won – a no-brainer for me to join!
From what i see in the full list of DLCs, they are predominantly underlying blue chip stocks and indexes from both SG and HK markets.
Given the on-going protests and poor market sentiment of Hong Kong, I think i would be underweight HK counters since the contest will only last until end of November. Or probably just the Short underlying indicators for a more active trading.
