24/7 Trader’s Talk Forum Sweepstakes Official Rules


No purchase necessary. A purchase of any product or service will not increase your odds of winning.

ELIGIBILITY: This sweepstakes is open to all individuals who are legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia who have reached the age of majority in their state on or before June 21, 2013 and who create a new profile on the 24/7 Trader’s Talk Forum between June 21, 2013 and the sweepstakes deadline.  All InvestorPlace Media officers, directors, employees and their immediate family members are not eligible to participate.

DIRECTIONS: To enter, simply go to the 24/7 Trader’s Talk Forum on the 24/7 Trader website:  By creating a new profile, you will automatically be entered into the current weekly drawing as well as the final grand prize drawing. In addition, a daily posting in that week’s forum will add one additional entry into the drawing for the then current week’s prize as well as the grand prize. Participants can only receive one entry per day for posting. Daily posting entries will not carry forward from week to week towards future weekly prizes; however, the original profile creation entry, as well as any once-daily posting entries, will be counted towards the grand prize drawing.

DEADLINE: All entries must be received by Friday 11:59:59 p.m. EDT for each weekly prize drawing and by Wednesday, July 31, 2013, 11:59:59 p.m. EDT for the grand prize drawing. In case of dispute about time of entry, Sponsor’s computer clock shall control.

WEEKLY PRIZES: Every Saturday one (1) lucky forum member will be selected by random drawing to win a free six-month subscription to an InvestorPlace Media trading service, as follows. Limit one weekly prize per person. Winning a weekly prize does not exclude you from winning the grand prize.

CLAIM OR FORFEITURE OF PRIZE: Once the winner’s name has been drawn, the winner will be notified using the email address he/she provided when creating his/her 24/7 Trader’s Talk Forum profile, as well as contacted by a site administrator using the forum messaging function. Sweepstakes participants are encouraged to add to their address book to avoid sweepstakes notifications from getting caught up inadvertently in a spam filter.

Winner will have 5 business days to respond to the 24/7 Trader’s Talk Forum Sweepstakes notification to claim their prize.
