New virtual trading competition from financial trading platform, Webull, engages investors and supports Shriners Hospitals for Children

Online broker-dealer will donate up to $50,000 to Shriners Hospitals for Children from returns made during its trading competition, which officially begins on October 7

Webull Financial LLC, an independent, self-directed broker dealer focused on zero commission stock trading and in-depth market data, has selected Shriners Hospitals for Children as the beneficiary of its inaugural Webull WeTrader Competition, which takes place from October 7 to November 8.

“We are honored to be selected as the beneficiary of the Webull WeTrader competition,” said Ryan West, associate program director, corporate partnerships at Shriners Hospitals for Children. “Corporate support plays a vital role in our ability to provide exceptional pediatric specialty care through our hospitals, clinics, telehealth sites and outreach programs, regardless of the families’ ability to pay.”

The two-part competition will allow traders of all levels to grow their skills and improve their strategies, all while benefitting charity. The Weekly Trading Competition – part one of the event – consists of four one-week trading periods, where every week $10,800 worth of Amazon gift cards will be awarded to participants with the top 10 most profitable portfolios. Winners at the end of the initial part of the competition will be invited to the final Grand Prize round, where they will compete to win a Tesla Model 3 Standard, or $40,000 to pay off their student loans.

All positive returns from the WeTrader Competition will be multiplied by 0.1% and Webull will donate that amount, up to $50,000, to Shriners Hospitals for Children. This will benefit the hospital in its mission to provide innovative pediatric specialty care, world-class research and outstanding medical education.

“We are proud to partner with Shriners Hospitals for Children, and further assist the organization in its ultimate goal to improve pediatric care,” said Anthony Denier, CEO of Webull. “Furthermore, we are thrilled to offer our users the ability to both improve their personal trading skills, and give back to the larger community through participation in our trading competition.”

Webull aims to offer an excellent experience to its users through an all-in-one, self-directed investment platform, as well as offering advanced and intelligent investment tools and services. Its multi-platform accessibility is designed for beginner, intermediate and advanced traders, providing users with zero commission trading, free real-time quotes (provided by NASDAQ Last Sale data feed), extended trading hours, 24/7 online help and much more.

Both current Webull users, and those who are interested in participating, can register for the competition by visiting, where they can also view official competition rules and regulations. All participants must have a Webull account and have downloaded the Webull app, available in the Apple and Android app stores. Participants who do not register by the October 7 start date are able to join the competition week-by-week.
