The award ceremony was held at the HKEX Connect Hall of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange on 28 October 2019, where he was awarded HK$35,000 prize money.

Throughout the competition, King Wa managed to generate excellent performances in trading different products. His final portfolio recorded the highest asset values among all, generating nine times of returns in six weeks.
