Are trader's from the USA allowed ?
Yes USA traders are allowed. Here is a copy of the conversation I had with OctaFX...
info: You are now chatting with 'Emma-Octafx'
Emma-Octafx: Hello. How may I assist you?
Joe Smith: Do you accept USA traders?
Emma-Octafx: No, we do not accept traders from USA.
Joe Smith: Don't you think it would be a good idea to include this in the rules for your trading contest? I just registered through myfxbook. I stated that I was a USA resident and it still let me register. Suppose I would have won this contest? I would be very upset
Emma-Octafx: The traders from USA can take part in that Demo Contest.
Joe Smith: What if I win? How would the $3,000 be deposited into my 'real account'?
Emma-Octafx: It will be possible, but the funds should not be traded in that case but to be withdrawn.
Joe Smith: Would they be available for immediate withdraw? Are you sure of these rules?
Joe Smith: Ok, thanks for your time
Emma-Octafx: You are welcome anytime.
Emma-Octafx: Thank you for chatting.
