Today is a milestone day for the Pinnacle community…
When we first set out to create one of the only online Stock Challenges over ten years ago, the world (and the Internet) was a very different place.
George W. Bush was running America, mining stocks were white hot, marijuana was illegal in Canada, the TSX Venture Index sat well above 2,000, and Bitcoin wasn’t invented.
Much has changed since then, but our mission with Stock Challenge has always remained the same: to provide one of the most engaging investment contests on the web; and reward those who do well while providing an educational platform for newcomers.
As you know, we spent 2018 and Q1 of 2019 building our new Stock Challenge platform… and we’re proud to say that with the release of Stock Challenge 3.0, we’ve accomplished something special for you, our valued subscriber.
Featuring a fresh new look and a robust player progression system, Stock Challenge has never provided a more engaging way for investors to test their knowledge of the stock market.
Stock Challenge 3.0 is Pretty Sweet

All the best with your investments,
About the Stock Challenge & How it Works
As one of Canada’s longest-running investment contests, Stock Challenge brings together hundreds of Canadian investors to compete for real prizes. We’ve awarded thousands of dollars in prizes over the years, and with Stock Challenge 3.0 we’re set to award even more…

The premise of Stock Challenge is simple: participants select two stocks that they believe will perform best for the upcoming month. When the month concludes, the top 3 challengers (determined by calculating the average return of both stock picks – highest return wins) will be awarded prizes.
1st place receives a 10-ounce silver bar, a Pinnacle Digest Stock Challenge Champ hoodie, and a slick Lacoste golf shirt, branded with the Pinnacle Digest logo – for those upcoming summer days on the links.
2nd place prize package: 5 ounces of silver and the golf shirt.
3rd place: Golf shirt.
Participants will also be awarded “Badges of Honour” depending on the performance of their stocks on a daily and monthly basis. There are badges for many other contest accomplishments as well. Click here to learn more about the badges, which are tracked in perpetuity.
Badges earned and point totals accrued may demonstrate a contestant’s ability to time market moves, their experience and consistency in the Pinnacle Stock Challenge, and how they stack up when compared to other participants. On every contestant’s profile page, which can be viewed by clicking on their username, you can view which badges they’ve earned, their lifetime point total, and much more.
But badges and points aren’t just for show — they enable you to earn rewards depending on the amount of points you collect. These rewards will be announced shortly, so be sure to stay tuned…
