In contest rules:
Within the contest the leverage should not exceed the ratio of 1:100.


Checked the contest account with a script - tells me the leverage is 1:200 (stopout is @20% margin level).
So will we have to pay attention to not exceed 1:100, on our own?
Will I be disqualified if I make use of the 1:200 leverage the account seems to offer?

Please make the account leverage compliant to the rules, as it will be a major PITA for most of the participants (usually maxing out the exposure in contests) to calculate the leverage of every trade.

@chocholousek can your script tell what I.P. address the FIBO server is using??

Better to try and fail than to not try and stagnate

Does it work with MT5 ?

indeed it does; in the example posted, i have terminated all other connected applications except the FIBO MT4.. typing 'netstat -bn' (without quotes) into the command prompt reveals all active connections on your machine, together with respective application names - in case of both MT4 and MT5, it's 'terminal.exe'.. so if you want to know any broker's server IP address, just make sure their MT4/MT5 is the only MT running on your pc, and use the command:



look for the line followed by [terminal.exe] - in the above pic, it's OANDA-MT4 live server.. with MT5, things will look the same.

tip: you can use some geolocation site to check where you're actually connecting to:

@chocholousek I tried downloading the FIBO MT4 terminal but the bloody thing won't connect. Kindly assist me with the IP address. Thanks.

@RealKenFX the default server (listed by name) works for me:



this is exactly the same, just with IP input in numerical form:



if either won't work for you, perhaps your internet provider is blocking/failing the route.
the FIBO server resides in London, UK and i have no problem to see it from 4 different locations.

open up a command prompt,
type 'ping 109.203.99.28' (without quotes) and press [Enter].
you should see something like this:



if you see no replies, but 'request timed out' messages - then you can't see the server, perhaps you can't see an entire network, or even a country, lol.

in that case, go call your internet provider to correct their routing.
in case they tell you it's not their fault, switch the provider.

hope it helps :-)

Hello, I just joined my fx book and I love everything going on here, I tried to register for the fibo contest, but the registration is temporarily closed, I don't know if it will perhaps be opened later.

I ran a script that's called 'Market Browse' and it tells me that the leverage is 1:100
Some days ago I received an email from myfxbook providing the right download link of the mt4 platform, that might explain the difference..

it shouldn't matter what mt4 version used, it's a server setting.
i have checked it few days ago.. was 1:200, that's why i posted the Q,
apparently they changed it.. checked it now (same installation) and it's indeed 1:100 :-)

@gianmarcoforex thanks for the heads-up!
