How to Play: Once participants have successfully logged into the Vestly™ Game, they can begin to participate in the Skills Contest. Participants can earn points by buying and selling stocks, and through other incentives offered by Sponsor.
Upon their first login to the Vestly™ Game, participants will be given a starting “investment capital” that can be used to buy and sell certain publicly traded stocks listed on the U.S. exchanges, which are provided by Sponsor. All participants start with the same amount of investment capital. The amount of investment capital is not quantified, and stocks are not bought and sold in terms of “shares” or dollar values. Participant’s portfolio is measured by the performance of the stocks they choose to trade. Trades may be made by purchasing a stock or shorting a stock. For stocks that trade infrequently, the trade will be executed on Vestly at the time it gets executed next on the actual stock exchange. The order is only valid for the rest of the trading day so that if there are no trades in that stock on the actual stock exchange for the remainder of the trading day, then the order on Vestly is cancelled. Orders entered after trading hours will be honored at the Open Price on the next trading day.
In order to be deemed an “Active Investor,” a participant must have logged onto the Vestly™ Game at least one time over the course of the current or previous Contest. If participant has an existing Vestly™ account from a previous Contest Period and is an Active Investor, their starting portfolio for the next Contest Period will consist of the same stocks held at the conclusion of the previous Contest Period; these stocks will be automatically traded in equal proportions at the beginning of the Contest Period and the opening market price on the first trading day of the month will be used as the trade price for the purposes of the Contest Period. However, there are some stocks which may be deemed illiquid (based on a combination of trading price, trading volume, and market cap during the most recent period). In the event that a stock in a participant’s portfolio contains stocks deemed illiquid by the Sponsor, those stocks will not be carried forward to the participant’s next month’s portfolio.
Participant’s investment capital is used to pay for trades of stock. In addition to traditionally buying a stock and then selling it, participants may also “short” stocks by selling them first and then buying them back. When a participant trades a new stock, the corresponding amount of investment capital is removed from their account and the remaining investment capital becomes “unallocated capital.” The amount of unallocated capital used to trade stocks is performed automatically and participants cannot trade more or less than this amount. The mechanisms by which stocks are traded in the Skills Contest are described below:
When participant holds no stocks (“holds” refers to a long or short position) and trades their first stock, 1/3 of their investment capital is used to trade the stock and the remaining 2/3 of the unallocated capital is held in reserve. If participant holds one stock, when they trade a second stock 1/2 of the unallocated capital is used to trade the second stock. If participant holds two stocks, when they trade a third stock the entirety of the remaining unallocated capital is used to trade the third stock. If participant holds three or more stocks they do not have any remaining unallocated capital and the overall value of the portfolio is used to determine the amount of any subsequently traded stock because equal portions of their existing holdings are traded to pay for the new trade. When participant trades a fourth stock the amount traded is equal to 1/4 of the overall value of participant’s portfolio at the time of the trade; when participant trades a fifth stock the amount traded is equal to 1/5 of the overall value of participant’s portfolio at the time of the trade; when participant trades a sixth stock the amount traded is equal to 1/6 of the overall value of participant’s portfolio at the time of trade, etc. To pay for the trades of stocks when participant holds three or more stocks, an equally proportionate amount is “sold or covered” from the stocks participant is holding to pay for the trade of the new stock. For example, for the trade of a fourth stock 1/3 of the trade value of the new stock is “sold or covered” from each of participant’s three held stocks; for the trade of a fifth stock 1/4 of the trade value of the new stock is “sold or covered” from each of participant’s four held stocks.
When participant holds three or fewer stocks and trades one of those stocks, the proceeds from the trade become unallocated capital. When participant holds four or more stocks and trades one of those stocks, the proceeds from that trade are automatically used to trade more of each of participant’s remaining holdings in an equal amount.
The amount of stock traded by participant is dependent upon their investment capital and other holdings. When participant elects to trade a stock they must trade all of that particular stock. Participants cannot alter the amount of stock they buy or sell. Dollar values and amounts are not displayed to participant. Participant’s performance is determined by the performance of a stock during the time it is held by Participant.
Stock pricing may not exactly correspond to other updates or services due to processing, communication or other factors. In the event of any discrepancy, the pricing on the Vestly™ Game will govern. Stocks on the Vestly™ Game will be traded at the price at the time the trade is made by participant, but the details of the transaction will not be available immediately and will be available usually about fifteen or twenty minutes after the trade. Stocks traded after the market closes will be traded at the opening price the next business day.
Some stocks pay dividends; in the event a participant holds a stock that provides dividends any dividend will be automatically reinvested in such stock provided that participant held that stock in their portfolio prior to the ex-dividend date. If participant trades a stock on the day of ex-dividend they will not receive any reinvestment of the dividend. If there is a stock split, merger, acquisition, spinoff, complex dividends or other action determined to be complex by the Sponsor affecting a stock held by participant, the value of the participant’s account will be adjusted accordingly.
Only stocks that appear on the Vestly™ Game will be available for trading and only such stocks will be used to determine participant’s score for purposes of the Skills Contest. Not all stocks may be available for trading on the Vestly™ Game. Sponsor is not responsible for stocks not being available on the Vestly™ Game, or lost, incomplete, incorrect or unexecuted trades.
Participants can hold as many as ten (10) different stocks at one time. There is no limit on the number of trades participant can make; however, high-frequency trading or similar strategies are not permitted. Use of scripts, computer programs, macros, robotic or any other automated means are also not permitted. Modification, decompilation or tampering with the Vestly™ Game is prohibited. Communication with Intelligration servers and systems is only permitted via the Vestly™ Game. Sponsor reserves the right to disqualify any participant, or modify or otherwise edit any portfolio in Sponsor’s sole discretion if such participant is deemed to have engaged in any action not permitted by these Official Rules or the Vestly™ Game, or is found by Sponsor to be circumventing the nature of the Skills Contest. All decisions by Sponsor shall be final.
Points will be allocated by percentage gain of stocks owned or shorted by participant. In the event a participant shorts a stock, the points will flow in the opposite direction. Participants will receive (or lose) 100 points for each one percent (1%) increase (or decrease) in their portfolio. Participants can receive points for fractional stock movement (i.e., 2 points for a 0.02% increase).
Participant is not required to sell or cover their stocks prior to or at the conclusion of the Contest Period. Participant will receive points for stocks still held in their portfolio at the conclusion of the Skills Contest.
All decisions regarding points awards and allocation, stock trade and sales, and participant’s accounts will be made by Sponsor in its sole discretion, and all decisions will be made final. For purposes of Contest Periods the values assigned to stocks in the Vestly™ Game shall govern; stock values based on other trading indices or marketplaces may differ from the Vestly™ Game. Sponsor reserves the right to adjust the value of any stock or otherwise account for various modifications.
How To Win: At the end of the Contest Period, participants who are Active Investors will be ranked based on the number of points earned (the “Skills Contest”). The total points awarded each Contest Period will be your score for that Contest Period. Points will only be awarded for actions performed during that Contest Period. There is no limit to the number of points you can receive during the Contest Period. At the beginning of the Contest Period all users will start with zero points, any points accrued in any prior Contest Period will not count towards your point total for the current Contest Period. The participant with the highest point total during the Contest Period will be the First Place Winner, the second highest total will be the Second Place Winner, and so on. The prize breakdown is below:
|4th – 13th
|14th – 100th
Total ARV of all prizes for the Skills Contest for each Contest Period: $3,990.
In the event of ties, the prizes for all of the places occupied by the tied players will be evenly distributed amongst the tied players.
