Simulation to Investors 
MONTREAL, Oct. 8, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - For a second time, National Bank Direct 
Brokerage (NBDB) will be acting as an exclusive sponsor of the Biggest Winner 
contest, presented by Horizons ETFs Management Canada (Horizons ETFs). 
Until November 15, 2013, simulation participants will have to grow a $100,000 
fantasy portfolio of exchange-traded funds (ETF). 
"ETFs are increasingly popular on financial markets, and simulations provide 
an excellent opportunity to find out more about them. Using simulations is 
also a risk-free way for independent investors to test out their investment 
skills. For those who want to be even more prepared, NBDB offers seminars and 
webinars that specifically cover ETFs," stated NBDB President Nancy Paquet. 
The participant with the highest yielding portfolio at the end of the six-week 
period will be awarded a cash prize of $7,500. The runner-up will receive 
$2,500. In addition, the participant with the highest portfolio growth each 
week will win $500. 
"For this edition, we have redesigned our online simulator to make it even 
more user-friendly," said Howard Atkinson, President of Horizons ETFs. The 
contest is open to all eligible Canadian residents and they can trade any of 
the 72 Horizons ETFs products in a simulated real-world environment with no 
cost and no risk."
