Hi everybody, hope you’re fine after your well-deserved holidays and that you have recharged your batteries to start trading in the FXstreet Trader of the Year Live Contest. Remember we start on September 6th, 2010 (next Monday) at 0.00 h. CET so get ready: sharpen your trendlines, fine tune your MACDs and choose the most accurate EMA period. It’s time to show your best trading tricks!
Remember that if you want to enter the competition just surf to http://www.fxstreet.com/live/contest/register.aspx and fill out the form. You can participate with your current trading account with any given broker (as long as you have a 2,000$ equity or equivalent in other currencies), so you do not need to open a new account with the sponsor to participate.
After that you have to register in our new social network, ForexStreet.net (www.forexstreet.net) and join the Trader Of The Year Contest group (http://www.forexstreet.net/group/traderoftheyearcontest). There you will have to post a message in the Group accepting the rules and providing the name of your current broker and account type (Standard or Mini), as well as telling us a little bit about you (personal bio, how many time you’ve been trading, etc.)
Then, once the Contest has started, every Friday after 22.00 h. CET you will have to post your account statement (of course, removing personal information) in the Trader Of The Year Contest group, commenting on how was your trading week.
The main goal of the contest is to improve ourselves as traders, not to burn out your account. So plan your trade and trade your plan. Good luck and may the Force, Gann’s Square of Nine and Elliott Waves be with you!
