Hello Moein,

Rankings tab shows results for each individual contest. There is no total Rankings page, at least not yet.

Hi there Kapil.

We've checked the trading history and there are no excluded trades.
Please remember that the stats page is not real-time, there's a slight delay between servers of about 20 minutes (to prevent traders from copying other traders).

Please refresh the page and check if the ranking is updated. Thanks Thumbs Up

Hello Jebz, Your position in the rankings compares you to other traders. Even when you are making profits, your place in the rankings can go down if other people are making profits higher than yours. Please also keep in mind that rankings are updated with around 20-30 minutes interval.

Hi there Nadeem!

Unfortunately, you were found in breach of the contest rules. As clearly stated:

We will disqualify anyone for what we view as unfair conduct: in general any trading activity that would not win in a real-world scenario. For example, opening multiple accounts and trading similar but opposing positions as an individual or group.


The phone number used to verify via SMS must actually work; you must be able to receive a call there in case we need to verify.


We recommend you to observe the contest rules when you decide to participate in our contests.
Thank you.
