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 Ayman6 from Egypt who took the second position with 785.8K USD in profit. massimoscalas from 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 (pine75 and 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.
Wish you all the best in February!
