Rules

Minimum winning trade duration: 1 minutes

Winning trades open for less than 1 minutes will be excluded from your performance calculation. Losing trades will still be included.

Maximum trades counts: 60

Only your first 60 eligible trades will be included in your performance calculation.

30.00% maximum equity drawdown

Accounts with greater than 30.00% peak to valley equity drawdown are disqualified.

The rules are put in place to ensure the contest is fair to everyone by preventing common cheating strategies such as taking advantage of latencies in the demo feed. Multiple entries per person are prohibited and enforced via SMS verification and IP address tracking. 1 entry per mobile phone and 2 entries per IP address (for different participants in the same location) are allowed.
