"A good trader would make profits on a certain day but only a great trader would make profits every day."

Bullrun is a trading competition we conduct every year during Pune Startup Fest. Bull Run is basically a virtual stock market and like a stock market, the participant may buy/sell shares and invest in the stock market. Anyone who is keen on testing their investing skills or is interested in playing with shares or just wants to experience the stock market environment can participate in this event. “Everyone has the brainpower to follow the stock market. If you made it through fifth-grade math, you can do it.” – Peter Lynch.
