Iron Trader is something completely new to hit the German/Austrian trading markets. It’s a trading game mixed with the first of its kind trading reality show. A transmedia project including games, reality show, social media interaction and education – all on one platform. Never before has a project like this been undertaken. The idea itself comes from German stock market reporter Markus Koch and his partner on this project Lance Weiler. The sponsors of the project are Hopee (the new community website of Cortal Consors), Macquarie Europe and brokerjet (for the Austrian part of the project).
