The strategy contest to me has been one of the most challenging contest for me in the Dukascopy community because i have traded manually for the past couple of years. Though I have been a member of the Dukascopy Community for over a year now, my first month of participation was December 2014.
Monthly Analysis
I have been attempting to build a winning scalping strategy based on the EURUSD because of its high liquidity, huge market depth and low spreads. However it has not always been rosy as evidenced in the Fig1 below
