The Dukascopy JForex Strategy Contest is a Forex competition between participants using DEMO accounts for automated trading. Special contest rules are designed to make the competition fair and challenging at the same time. This contest is a perfect choice for those who are learning to program trading strategies.
The ranking of the participants is obtained through a summary of their trading performance, strategy popularity and expert evaluation. Participants submit the strategy source files to the remote server that runs strategies non-stop during the contest month. At their own discretion, the author of a strategy has the right to disclose the code script on their personal blog in order to achieve higher popularity in the contest. The contestant can describe the strategy algorithm and comment on its performance on their personal blog. Dukascopy Forex Community members are offered to read, analyse and evaluate strategies by rating or commenting on them.
The Dukascopy Strategy Contest is conducted regularly on a monthly basis with a total monthly prize fund of $15.000 to be shared among the winners.
