iggy_ua from Ukraine has finished in the first place in January with 929.6K USD in profit. This is the first won prize for him as well as for Ayman6from Egypt who took the second position with 785.8K USD in profit. massimoscalasfrom Italy managed to finish third with 423.9K USD. Congratulations to January top-3 winners as well as for other 27 finalists.
While checking preliminary January rankings we found 2 participants (pine75and sukeshroy) who did not conduct the 10 required trades during the contest month and therefore were not included in the final standings. Dear participants, please read the Rules carefully in order not to be disappointed by our final decision.
Very similar PnL charts of two participants from Bosnia and Herzegovina (Taxista and Nerka) also brought our attention. After the investigation we took the decision to disqualify Nerka for a lot of similar trades with Taxista conducted from one IP. We do not forbid sharing trading experience with each other but such practices as simultaneous trading on different accounts are not acceptable.
Valday74, ososelgin and chase_wind who finished on 31-33 places were lifted 3 places up and got 200 USD prize each. Prizes for Nooooooooooor and Julliana are suspended due to unconfirmed phone numbers.
In addition we inform you that starting from today Trader’s blog points’ assignment procedure will become more severe. Points will be awarded only for those authors who write the posts themselves. Sharing news and articles from other sites is not forbidden but such posts should also be accompanied by your comments. The decision whether to assign a point for the post or not will be taken by the moderator after reviewing the post.
The last month of 2015 has come to an end and the results are as follows.
It was discovered that user mano930 decided to cheat and gain some points in Order’s quality nominations at the very last day of the month. That helped her overcome user lotiti and finish in the second position. However, such activity will be discovered and leads to only one possible outcome – disqualification from the current month. The next attempt will result in a permanent ban from Community.
It is sad to say but 2 more participants (amk234 and DillTraderUA) were excluded from the final version of the ranking due to lack of the conducted trades (less than 10).
But now, let us move to the positive part of the news and congratulate one of the old-timers of Community AdamFx42 with the first place he took in December! 272 points gained helped him to take winning position in the Trader contest for the first time since April 2013.
Two other positions are also occupied by Community veterans. lotiti who showed the best performance in December and gained 683K USD in profit has been lifted one rank up and finished in the second place.
peterisp for whom it was 44th month of participation in the contest ended the competition in the third place.
Congratulations – and we are looking forward to seeing your webinars conducted on our TV.
The prizes for the remaining 25 winners have already been credited except mandalafxbz who still has not confirmed his phone number in profile. The prize for SerJunior is also suspended due to fake names in his profile.
4 out of 10+ users from Pakistani team who were in the top positions in the very first days of November were disqualified from the top-30 for obvious signs of team tactics (ajmalakbar, Ghani, rashidiqbal, guldar). The same penalties for the same reasons were applied to STARLINE, Panzer and Sux87 from Bosnia and Herzegovina as well. Continued attempts to cheat will lead to a permanent ban of the mentioned Community members. Please take this into account if you plan to remain a part of Community and do not try to break the Contest Rules or be smarter than our tracking and anti-cheating systems.
Sadly, 2 more traders (Gaara, MyLifeDeBaf) were excluded from the top-30 winners list due to lack of conducted trades in the contest month (less than 10).
This is the first time in almost 3 year we have had to disqualify such a large number of traders in the final stage, so we take this opportunity to remind our participants that violating the rules is not the way to victory.
Corrections and disqualifications did not lead to changes in top-3 leaders positions taken by Trillionsfund, shanziester and yellownight and we congratulate them with this achievement! But other participants were lifted a few places up and opened the doors for those participants who finished outside the November’s top-30.
Since we did not evaluate Trader’s blog posts for the 4 last days of November, few blog points were added for some participants and it caused minor changes in the winners’ list.
That is all for now. Wishing you all a green month.
