So how many of you are entering this contest?

It was a bit awkward but after much though I guess it's a win win win situation.

I mean fxdd is footing out the prize money but the winner can't cash his/her winning unless he/she trades about 100 standard lots in order to be eligible for the prize.

This first thing that came out of my mind was 'Casino bonus' 😀 One need to bet a certain amount of times before they can withdraw their bonus.

Anyway... like I say... FXDD is footing out the prize money. So not only must the contestant TRY to win, but the contestant must also TRY to make the 100 stardard lot criteria before they can actually consider themselves a winner.

Mighty interesting... Long road ahead to the prize money... 😀

Whatever it is, I'm going to try my 'luck' hehe 😎

Doesn't work for me.

Have to put down a good few K to be able to claim your prize. Bit gold plated hand-cuffy....

I understand their perspective, but surely we can just pool the bucks or something. Entry is $250 winner keeps it all. Like in the old days, when cowboys smoked and you were only as good as your last hand or a better shot than the other guy if his hand was better...

Far be it for me to suggest that brokers don't operate with total integrity but it seems to me that over 100 standard lots FXDD could easily claw back $2000 from you.

11:15, restate my assumptions: 1. Mathematics is the language of nature. 2. Everything around us can be represented and understood through numbers. 3. If you graph these numbers, patterns emerge. Therefore: There are patterns everywhere in nature.

whats the 'grand prize' again?.... whatever it is, FXDD would have made 500 times that on trading volume before giving the crumbs to the dogs!!🙄

winning isnt victory and losing isnt defeat.

Guys, a quick update - after reading your posts, we've contacted FXDD. They were quick to react, and the requirement was changed to <b>mini lots</b> instead of standard lots.

Expecting to see all of you in the contest! 😄

It would be nice to at least get a list of user names that are in the running on the contest, just to gauge how much competition there is. I for one am excited about the competition, nothing to loose!
