As you all know, most if not all brokers offer various trading challenges. I was wondering if any of you ever participate and what your experience with those is?

One of the larger contests going now is only in MT5. Most of us here are MT4 with live trading and EAs built on MT4. Thus, we are knocked out of that contest.

Alright, but a lot of brokers I came across keep their trading challenges open to existing clients and some allow EA's as well or is it simply not of interest?

Can you shoot me more info about the MT5 contests? I have been using MT4 for quite some time, but every so often a contest is not a bad challenge.

Will you tell us about brokers who are running contests on MT5 ?

Hi Garry,

as of now I only participate over at Paxforex (I am not sure if I am allowed to post links, but given I see them on here I will go ahead and mods can delete them if it violates any posting rules (https://paxforex.com)). They offer a $200 No Deposit Bonus and their terms are very reasonable in my opinion. Basically you get 30 days to earn $200 and the bonus is yours after trading five lots.

Let me know of any MT5 contests that you know and like so I can check them out. Thanks

I like participating in trading challenges as those help to relieve stress caused in real-world trading 😀. Just make sure you don't take the bet-the-farm-approach too much to heart once the contests end... 😁

Hi, HotForex have a number of contests running at the moment, they have a trader award every month with a cash prize of $1000, they are also doing a Hit the Bullseye competition, where you have to predict the price of a selected list of financial intruments and where the price will be by December 1st 2012. I particularly find the prize attractive as you can win a fully loaded trading account of $10,000.
