Good day All.. All the best for #21 via FxPro. Of critical importance is the level at which all trades are closed out, if in DD.

Fxpro has 50% compared to 100%= Equity/Margin. .. for Global Prime.

We ought not to be ANYWHERE, there, if we are to remain in a 30% max DD contest, but to those in the know, this can a useful secret weapon๐Ÿ‘ผ๐Ÿฟ

Each broker has some critical nuances that must be known and they differ from broker to broker. The instrument pairs may be named slighly differetly. The pip rates can be different too, even at the same 100:1 account leverage.

Some may be $0.01/pip; $0.1/pip or $1.00/pip: per mominal pip(smallest tradeable unit and hence nominal margin requirement)., some may even have weekend trading for cryptos.. etc.

All up to how the broker configures the accounts to satisfy their business models.

All brokers are like getting the services of a General Practioner MD.. the difference could save a life.

Happy hunting all.

Bless! RC.๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿ‘ผ๐Ÿฟ

P.S.can we now attach files? Not seeing a related button.๐Ÿ˜ช.




Hi there RC! Good day to you also, my friend!

Love the way you think. Yes, brokers are like GPs, hahahaha.
In the end it's also down to the trader to do it's "due diligence", find out the leverage ratios for the diferent instruments, MC, etc., etc.
I mean, yes, we try to help, answering questions and etc, but we cannot spoon fed traders - they have to work it out.

Anyways, thanks for your observations RC, and best of luck for contest 21.
Regarding file attaching, yes, the button is there - might not be the best obvious thing, but it's there. Check the image attached.
We are looking forward to see yoru final Trading Plan, as suggested previously, you should start a new topic, like "Developing a Trading Plan" where other traders could ask questions, exchange ideas, etc.

Many blessings, RC smile

- Angelus


Thanks much Angelus, your kind regards are noted and welcome.

As noted the attach shows for private messages, but not here: in the open.

Will see if I can share in the efforts regarding trading plan development. The one I have, as my member icon/ photo is borrowed from youtube. I have merely personalized it ito a pre-entry "Trade plan". I use ot when I seek to position trade, per the MAEEE system.

Scalping however, is another animal.

Just to note there are tonnes of trading plans, merely roadmaps of ones intentions: be it on the next trade or trades in general.

Thanks for the interest will see how soon (schedule willing), I can share same, per your suggestions.

Bless! RC.๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿ‘ผ๐Ÿฟ


Hi there RC, good day to you!

"As noted the attach shows for private messages, but not here: in the open." - that's very strange, normally works ok.
As said before, looking forward to start a new topic, regarding a trading plan, RC.
I'm sure novice traders (and even more experienced ones) will appreciate it and it will be a great add-on smile

Thanks and many blessings smile

I am logged in. Also, I contacted the support. They said that contest registrations are temporarily stopped. Now I see, they are opened again. But still, nothing happens when I click the "Join Now" button. If I right click the button to open a new window this is what I get: "about:blank#blocked"

I want to ask how the drawdown is calculated because I'm only floating $1500 but when I've made a profit of $1,000 or a balance of $6000 and what is the draw down calculated from the initial capital or the last balance

Hi there dodit!

First of all, the contest 21 max DD is 30%, valid for the duration of the contest.

The drawdown is calculated on equity peaks to valleys. In other words, our systems record the maximum amount of equity your account reached at any given point, and calculates drawdown as a percentage of that peak. Once you reach a new peak, the previous value is deleted and the new peak is used to calculate your drawdown.


You can check this post Equity DD - User Guide for more info.
Hope this helps smile

I contacted the support and they send the issue to the IT department. Latter I received the email saying that the IT department did not find any problems. But regardless I was still not able to register by clicking "Join Now" button. Then I remembered that in my settings I had set my Country to "Euro Area", because there is no option for Croatia, which is my country. So what I did was this. In my settings I changed Country to some random entry - Austria. And tried to click the "Join Now" button again. And then... it was successful. I finally managed to register a demo account. So, obviously you have some issues with those settings regarding Countries that you should fix.

Hi there again DML forex!

First of all, we are happy that the issue is solved!
Secondly, many thanks for taking the time to report it to us and the fix you've used.
I've sent your feedback to our IT guys, and support team, for further analysis.

I know that for some strange reasons some countries block financial services websites, and possibly, Croatia is one of them (we also receive reports from traders in Indonesia and Turkey, for example).

We're very happy that you managed to fix it, and wish you the best of luck with contest 21 Thumbs Up

Thanks

Hi again Lna.

Here's some questions from our support colleagues:

When its freezing? during the news?
Are you using VPN?
Any indicators that could cause the issue?
What are the settings on the "max bars in history"
it would be good to know times when it happens, etc

If you can find the time to answer those questions, or give more details, we will try to find the issue.
Thanks
