if not mistaken its in terms of vol in $, 'For every $1 of the prize, you must have a trading volume of $5000 in order to be eligible for withdrawal.'
This meant assuming you trade only usd base currency, ie, eurusd, gbpusd, audusd, nzdusd. NOTE again its TRADING VOLUME of $5000 per $1
Assuming that u won 1st prize of $3750, ==> $3750 * $5000 ==> $18,750,000 🙃
1 lot of eu @ 1.38815==>$138,815. This works out to be abt 135 lots of EU. The trade volume is AFFECTED by bid/ask of that currency, if u trade GU, u would be able to reach ur target sooner. Whilst if u trade au, u will need more lots. Typically an average active trader can trade abt 50-100 lots per mth, (unless the trader prefers positional trades, or slowly does it). Otherwise depending on that trader (and his/her EA that helped to win that prize), its abt 1 mth or even 1 day.😱
To win this prize, its obvious whether that trader has a good strategy (which may include entry/exit/lot allocation). Its more likely that this trader that wins has some sort of EA to help with that. If this trader can hit abt 100-150 lots within this 1 mth contest, and get that deserved prize, then its no doubt that the trader can easily formulate the same strategy to get away the prize $. Whats more impt is that we all enjoy ourselves, besting each other, making friends, and even sharing strategies with each other (without spilling all the beans) during the contest. Its the best platform to meet like minded traders who always love a challenge 😎
I have always kaputted my contest acct with all sorts of hairball EAs, until the recent ExcelMarket 9Jan-8Feb, whereby I was placed 8th. Just enjoy the ride and the excitement. Make friends, ignore naysayers, be confident, be gracious. When u know u r lossing and doesnt look like there's any hope, withdraw from the contest (esp after u hv lost 50% of the balance). At least u now know whether your EA's or strategy/ies work. And what r u doing if it doesnt? Just crying? NOW, go register and join the challenge! 😉
I join a contest just to find out where I stand among the world best traders. The sponsor broker is a business entity not a charitable organization therefore to look after their profits is their basic right. Besides the price, we can think of other things. The joy of participating, get to know the other traders, sharing trading strategies etc. Cheers to all participants.😄
