To prevent 'gambler Trader(s)' who open large lot size trades and luck-that-through-with-a-large-wining-position, I would suggest a limit size on lot trades (perhaps 10.0 lot size) and maximum 5 open trades at any one time. With these two additional T&C in place, that will give new traders a chance in the competition.
I have checked out this broker and, though I am not too keen on a broker headquarter & regulated in Belize City, Belize, I will try out their trading platform in this competition and see what happens from there.
Also I have checked reviews on couple forums and see that a representative, Anthony K, from FXChoice is very active to resolving complaints from their clients....and that suggest to me that this broker is active in building up their reputation. Impressive! 😀
May I clarify the rule in the contest which says 'The use of commercial robot is prohibited.' Does this mean we can not use Expert Advisors of any kind or only those being sold in the market? Thanks and good luck to all.
It depends on what type of trading account you registered for. If 'cents' account, then profits will be in cents for 0.01, 0.10, etc. For mini and standard account, the dollar value for 0.01, 0.10 etc will be as the type of trades you make.
There are a number of brokers who have 'Trader's calculator/Currency Converter' ...I use Exness under 'Tools'....which helps to convert trades value, margin requirement, etc at whatever leverage & type of account you use.
That last contest thread set a new record for dumb questions easily answered by reading the rules...and definitely for the most whiners. Hopefully this will be better...though I see the questions have already started.
We do need to clarify the rule regarding 'commercial robots' though. As a couple others have asked, how would they differentiate between EA's that were purchased and ones that were coded by the trader themselves....or ones downloaded for free. Does this mean no EA's at all? (I don't use them so it makes no difference to me...but this IS a good question that needs an answer.)

There are no such 'rules' in the real world so this is a dumb idea IMHO. If somebody wants to trade balls out they should be allowed to...if they make good trades and know what they are doing they win big...if not, they blow up their account real fast. I've said this before but I'll say it again: Soros didn't become rich and famous by risking 2% per trade. That's just the way it is with short 1 month contests like these. If you want a 'prop trading simulator' type of contest, go enter the Dukascopy one.
