In February 2005, Ferreri ran a contest asking people to send in their tips for how to be a success at the rank of Trader. This is the rank at which players have to master futures contracts, and players often find it hard to get to grips with, so the following tips which were submitted for the contest will be very useful to those who have newly promoted to Trader.

Ferreri says, "This was a hard contest to judge. All of the entries were excellent, good advice for new and struggling Traders. Wish I could have been able to give each contestant a slithy."
