Questrade recently became the first Canadian broker to offer clients free live NASDAQ basic data. NASDAQ invited Questrade to ring the opening bell at the NASDAQ MarketSite in recognition of this important partnership. Questrade decided to launch a “Ring The Nasdaq Opening Bell” contest which will give a trader (and one guest) the opportunity of a lifetime. The grand prize winner of this contest will be flown to New York City to ring the opening bell with Questrade on January 14, 2013.

The winner of this contest will receive a free flight for two from anywhere in Canada to New York as well as three-night’s accommodation. If that wasn’t enough, Questrade is throwing in $500 in bonus spending money! In addition to the grand prize, Questrade will also be providing weekly prizes throughout the contest period. The contest entry period ends on December 15. The Grand Prize draw will take place on December 20.

How do you enter the contest? Questrade is allowing signups to the contest through their twitter page, their facebook page, and through the contest site itself. Finally, you can also write to Questrade and apply by postcard.

The contest is open to Canadians only. Additional ballots can be earned by opening and funding a new account, making a trade inside a Questrade account, and referring friends to enter the contest.
