Hi Everyone,

If you have any questions regarding the upcoming contest, feel free to post it here - Chris Reynolds, GO Market's Director of Operations will be answering your questions.

Chris, first few questions are:

- Is this open to USA residents?
- Is 100:1 leverage available to all?
- Are your live accounts available to US residents?

Thanks!

Hi everyone!

Yes this contest is open to everyone including US resident. However please consider that the prize of GO Markets funded live accounts may not be provided to those who are ineligible to open a new account with GO Markets. As US clients will not be approved to open an account for regulatory reasons, they will not be able to receive the live account prize. However, GO Markets will provide a cash prize of half the value of the live account prize won if a winner is not able to be approved for a new live account. I.e. for a 1st Place winner (prize: live account funded with $2,500) a cash prize of $1,250 will be provided.

The competition gives everyone a demo account with 100:1 leverage. GO Markets live account holders can get leverage up to 500:1.

Unfortunately we are not able to accept clients from the US. Since the rather annoying CFTC regulations came in last year our hands have been tied...

If you have any questions, please let me know!

Thanks,
Chris

wouldn't it be more fair if everybody in a contest played the same leverage and account balance?

Sorry, perhaps I wasn't clear.

Everyone in the contest gets the same balance (50,000) and the same leverage (100:1).

I was saying that we offer up to 500:1 leverage on live accounts.

Thanks,
Chris

I thought that seeing as myfxbook had started this thread it was being pointed to from somewhere which would have had all the rules... obviously not!

thank you for the link.

one final issue... when i am trading, i like to wrap my head in tinfoil... it keeps those pesky alien radio waves from confusing me.

will you be supplying rolls of tin foil for this contest or should i bring my own?

I have a question, what is the margin % required in this demo contest?
In other words, last contest the broker margin closed at <100% margin.

And I bet you wanted to say 'in the unlikely event someone from USA should win, they get half the prize money'
Now I know I may not be as smart as some of the Ukrainians on this forum, I still gotta try, ney?

and btw zero is a smarty pants. you can get rules by clicking the headline link 'contest'. 😝
go with the flow; just be on the right end of the wave

hello.

i dont do contests, cuz i am a dork, but just to clarify one issue regarding the prize issue...

the prize will be a funded account? for which funds can only be withdrawn after thirty days?

so, if the winner wanted to just leave the awarded account idle for thirty days and then just withdraw the funds, are there any restrictions that the contest players might want to be aware of?

thank you.

The stopout margin level is 50% on our MT4.

BAHAHA! This totally made my day! 😁

Looking forward to the competition, though I'm in U.S. I still like to play for fun. I don't really see it as a contest though...more like a gambling opportunity. Realistically not very many people can throw in $50,000 for a real account and high leverage really has no logic other than deceiving people into thinking they can 'get rich quick' with less money.

I think all the FX contests here should be based on a scoring system. In other words, you get so many points for gain, so many points for drawdown, profit factor, etc etc. Alpari's contest was like that (starting balance $10,000 & 1:50 leverage), and I think it makes the game more strategic and realistic.

Of course this is probably a suggestion for MyFxBook and not you guys. But anyways.

There are no other restrictions. If someone wants to leave their prize money in the account then that is up to them...

i have been giving some thought to this whole contest issue..

i looked thru a few of the previous winners and found one guy that won several thousand dollars by making a 2200% gain in a month on a demo account.

could he do 2200% in a month on a live account?

wouldnt that be something, to be able to turn 22 times your money in a month...

anyways, it is my opinion that a real contest might be more along the following terms:

no demo account trading.
everybody begins with a $250.00 live account that is set to the same leverage setting.
there is no second or third place winner.
the first place winner takes the prize, period.
maybe make the prize something along the lines of 10k or 15k or maybe even more..

a contest such as this would really attract a lot more attention and would serve as a better promotional tool for the broker that puts it all on.
