From what I read on http://www.fxopen.com/TradingTerms.aspx
1:100 for accounts with balance less than USD 1,000
1:1 - 1:500 for accounts from USD 1,000 up to 25,000 USD
1:1 - 1:200 for accounts from USD 25,000 up to USD 100 000
>> 1:1 - 1:100 for accounts from USD 100,000 up to USD 1,000,000 <<
is the contest based on FXOpen Trading terms or not?
since I see traders with leverage 1:1000
all contest accounts were opened with 1:500 leverage. You can easily verify this if you try to calculate margin for open trades using the formula, that Dontknow suggested above - price x lot / leverage = margin requirement
Do you happen to know any of the account numbers that have 1:1000 displayed as leverage?
If yes, please, PM to me, then we will be able to check if the leverage is really different or it's just an issue of displaying leverage on the profile page,
