WSDT Stocklock Special 2021 rules

Every trader who qualifies for the competition receives access to a demo trading account with a trading balance of $240,000. During the competition period of six trading days, competitors will compete to achieve the highest balance.


The competitors will be eliminated if they are:

  • Trading on fewer than four active trading days out of the six.
  • Holding an open trading position at the end of any of the trading days.
  • Holding a daily loss of $3,500 at any point during a trading day. For example, if you start a trading day with a balance of $245,000 and equity goes below $241,500, you will be disqualified.
  • Holding a total loss of $12,000 at any point during the competition. Also, an account value of less than $228,000 will result in disqualification.
  • Trading using patterns or behaviors that are deemed illegal, illegitimate, biased against other competitors, or otherwise violate the fair-play spirit of the competition.

WSDT Stocklock Special 2021 scoring system

The scoring is broken down into two parts - Days 1-5, and Day 6 (End of Competition)

On each of the 1-5 days, you can score up to 15 points based one your daily performance as per the Daily Ranking Scoring Table.

On the sixth day, you earn up to 75 points based on your overall performance as per the Day 6 (End of Competition) Scoring Table.

Your total score is the sum of the entire competition (Days 1,2,3,4,5 + Day 6)

How does daily scoring work:

Regardless of your account balance in the beginning of the day, you are ranked based on your P/L for the same day.

For example:

Alex started Day 3 with an account balance of $250,000 and gained $2,000 on his competition account, so by the end of Day 3 his account balance is $252,000.

For Day 3 Alex’s P/L is +$2,000

Benjamin started Day 3 with account balance of $238,000 and gained $4,000 on his competition account, so by the end of Day 3 his account balance is $242,000.

For Day 3 Benjamin’s P/L is +$4,000

Charlie started Day 3 with account balance of $270,000 and lost $1,000 on his competition account, so by the end of Day 3 his account balance is $269,000.

For Day 3 Charlie’s P/L is -$1,000

In such case, between the three competitors above, the Day 3 Ranking would be:

Name Daily P/L Account balance end of Day 3
1 Benjamin +$4,000 +$242,000
2 Alex +$2,000 +$252,000
3 Charlie -$1,000 +$269,000

As you can see, the account at the end of Day 3 is irrelevant for Day 3 Ranking.

Your Day 3 ranking (just like Day-1,2,3,4,5) will give you the daily number of points as per the Daily Ranking Scoring Table.

How does Day 6 scoring works?

  • All competitors are sorted based on their Day 6 (End of Competition) account balance and given points as per the Day 6 (End of Competition) Scoring Table.
  • Simply put, if on Day-6 (End of Competition)
  • Alex’s Competition Account balance is $220,000 (disqualified)
  • Benjamin’s Competition Account balance is $265,000
  • Charlie’s Competition Account balance is $250,000

Between the three competitors above the Day-6 ranking would be:

Name Account balance Day 6
1 Benjamin $265,000
2 Charlie $250,000
3 Alex Disqualified


1. The Day 6 ranking does not consider any of the daily rankings

2. Disqualified competitors lose all their points and cannot win any prizes or receive any rankings
