I am thinking about this comp and comps in general. There is only one way to win and thats to push the boundaries, if you trade in a sensible manner and trade well increasing your account by 1% a day = 20% over the month you still have little to no chance of winning.
If you look at the past contests and the % increase of the winners you will see what Im on about, all the winners took risks OR got seriously lucky.
No 'sensible' trader wins (without some good luck) and the winners normally have huge drawdowns.
What are your thoughts? MINE = We need to take risks to win ANY comp OR be on the right end of a BREXIT type trade.
Not saying comp winners are bad traders just that Taking LARGE RISK and LUCK seem to be major factors.
