I applaud FXChoice for making & taking some very difficult decisions and did the right thing by admitting to their system failures, and listening to potential future clients' problems & suggestions and acting upon them to make the competition a more even field.
That is, in my book, are traits of what a good & responsible broker is all about.
For me, well, I will re-download FXChoice MT4 trading platform over the weekend and will partake in the competition once more.
Personally for me, it's not a matter of winning, but putting to the test all my more than 4 years of trading skill & knowledge when pitted against other similar Traders and see how I rank as a Forex Trader against the other competitors.
In a competition which has been made a more level playing field will certainly help in evaluating my trading skill & knowledge....also I get a chance to see how other Traders trade which will further enhance my skill & knowledge in trading the forex market.
To those who are apprehensive in sending their personal documents for verification, that's a fact of life we all have to face when signing up with any broker. If you think the information & documentation required by FXChoice (which are pretty standard requirement from all brokers) are too detailed, then you should try applying for a live trading account with Dukascopy who require a lot more documentations than I have ever encountered from any of the more than 10 brokers that I have used.
