Within the contest the leverage should not exceed the ratio of 1:100.
Checked the contest account with a script - tells me the leverage is 1:200 (stopout is @20% margin level). So will we have to pay attention to not exceed 1:100, on our own? Will I be disqualified if I make use of the 1:200 leverage the account seems to offer?
Please make the account leverage compliant to the rules, as it will be a major PITA for most of the participants (usually maxing out the exposure in contests) to calculate the leverage of every trade.
indeed it does; in the example posted, i have terminated all other connected applications except the FIBO MT4.. typing 'netstat -bn' (without quotes) into the command prompt reveals all active connections on your machine, together with respective application names - in case of both MT4 and MT5, it's 'terminal.exe'.. so if you want to know any broker's server IP address, just make sure their MT4/MT5 is the only MT running on your pc, and use the command:
look for the line followed by [terminal.exe] - in the above pic, it's OANDA-MT4 live server.. with MT5, things will look the same.
tip: you can use some geolocation site to check where you're actually connecting to:
