Strategy Trader FX Article Contest Miss Dukascopy 2015 Technical Analysis Fundamental analysis Signal Provider Trader of the year Extreme Binary Dukat Contest Social Trading Dukascopy Poker Daily Stock options Posted 30 Jun 2015

Hello, traders!

Dukascopy Community is developing, and every month there is something new! As you might have noticed, two new contests were introduced during the last six months (Dukat Contest and DSO Contest) with the yearly prize fund of 272 thousand dollars.

It was decided not to settle on this, and starting from July, Community yearly prize fund will be increased by 1/3 - from 1.6 to 2.1 million dollars! This will affect both the prize amounts and the number of winning places in some contests. And the turnover requirements will only be bumped by 25% (from 2 to 2.5 million dollars for 100 dollars won).

There will be certain changes in the Trader Contest and Signal Provider Grand-Prix. Starting from July, the Trader contest leaders table will only show participants with less than 60% of maximum drawdown for the current month. Nevertheless, traders with higher drawdown can also claim prizes.

In the Signal Provider Grand-Prix, traders will also be filtered by the average maximum drawdown during 6 or 12 last trading months. Prizes will only be available for traders whose average maximum drawdown does not exceed 60%. Along with these changes, there are also a few bonuses:
•    Signal Provider contest changes from quarterly to monthly;
•    The number of prize places changes from 6 per quarter to 10 per month;
•    Yearly prize fund increases by 69% (from 62 to 105 thousand dollars).

We hope these changes will encourage traders to take less risk in the long-term, and make contests more attractive. All of the above changes will be reflected on the website in July.

Regards,

Community team

Themed contest: Visual JForex

FX Article Contest Posted 31 Mar 2015

We want to change and improve the Article Contest, to provide more quality, original articles, so we'd like to try an experiment.

The April contest will have the following changes:

  • Only articles on the given topic - Visual JForex - will be accepted.
  • We will hand-pick and reward only the best articles, not the top-10. There may be up to 10 winners.

So this month we invite you to submit articles about learning Visual JForex, building and sharing strategies.

Dear Community members,

To avoid any misunderstandings and extra difficulties with paying out the contest prizes, we do kindly suggest you to request the prizes you won prior to September 1st 2014 until the end of 2014.

Starting from January 1st 2015, we will consider all the outstanding and unpaid prizes subject to the turnover of 1.5 million USD per 100 USD won.

DFC team

Minimum turnover requirements

Dear DFC participants,

You have obviously noticed that during this year Dukascopy has been committed to extending the range of the contests and increasing their prize funds. All the activity of the team was driven towards making the Community more and more exciting, appealing and challenging. These efforts coincided with yet another half-year of decreasing spreads that ensured Dukascopy Bank remaining amongst the market leaders by that factor.

In order to maintain the balance between the increasing prize fund and the improving trading conditions Dukascopy has taken the decision to increase the minimum turnover requirements for withdrawing the prize funds to 1.5 million USD for every 100 USD won in the contests.

Changes will be effective for new contest periods.

Regards,
DFC team
