- At the end of the month the trader with the most profit wins the prize.
How to Play - Walkthrough
You need an account on ForexDesk (you can't use your T2W login). So head over to ForexDesk to view the sign up form...
Choose the same username as you use on T2W and the invitation code 'T2WCOMP'.
Fill out the rest of the details (full name is optional) and click 'Sign Up':
You'll receive an email with a link to confirm your email address and activate your account. On clicking that link you'll be logged in to ForexDesk:
Next step is to create your account for the competition. Each month you'll need to create a new account to play with. Click the 'New Practice Account' link, as below:
You can then fill out the new account form.
It's very important you insert the current contest tag into your account name, either as the whole name or added to it. This way we can identify that your account is participating in the competition. The current contest tag will look something like: #T2W-DEC11. Check the details page of the current contest to find out what to use.
Leave the settings as they are - any changes to the account or lot size, will make this account invalid for the purposes of the competition.
Then just click 'Create New Account' as so:
Your competition account will be created and will appear on your dashboard:
Once the contest starts then you can start trading on this account either manually, using MetaTrader or an FXCM demo account here:
To see how you're performing against other players, head over to the Contests section on T2W to view our realtime leaderboard and progress chart. The winner will be announced shortly after the contest closes.
Good luck and Happy Trading!
