live contest is a different ball game. only traders with a good strategy end up winning.
You can recogniize a good 'strategy', better trading method, by a low Draw Down and by the application of a Stop Loss - ALWAYS.
This I can not see by those in profit.
Most go through a more or less big Draw Down.
Just some apply a Stop Loss.
At the end we will see just a few participants in positive territory.
You can BET on this !
A blue marlin in the ocean is like a trader in the markets, no enemies but evil people.
