    is it possible to modify the ranking page letting know the ranking score of each participant? It's unconfortable to not know the distance between competitors

      BMM just got back to No.2 on the April leaderbord with a drawdown of only -0.12% but this drawdown number is not correct.
      He trades only DAX for a profit target of 3 points... but his last trade (trade #12) which closed today April 12 he was holding for 2 days trough a BIG drawdown...

      On April 10 the intraday leaderboard showed a drawdown of -4.26% (see picture). On April 11 the drawdown was even much worse as DAX "crashed" more down.
      So how is it possible that now none of these 2 drawdowns are shown in the statistics??



      I thought I was crazy when I saw the -0.12% drawdown today; guess I'm not the only one that noticed...

          Hey all!

          Thanks for highlighting this. Will and I will be looking into this to workout whether it's a display issue (meaning, are we factoring this draw-down in the formula but visually it's incorrect or both).

          I'll revert back once we get around to looking into it.

              I did have a bit of interest with people asking how they can follow me, I just spoke to FS support and they wont be able to waive the 6th month rule(due to new broker) so wont be able to offer on simpletrader, so instead Im also setting up a mql5 as a signal provider, will let you know when thats done.
              Evening traders, Im back and connected in the contest!, as I moved my master account to a new broker all the stats were reset, hopefully I can make it to the top again and compete with PistolPete for that first place!

                  Hey there.. DOM/Nick

                  I wonder why the stats for the competition is not working correctly, especially in regards to BMM who has some floating DD that is not showing in the leader-board for the contest..

                  as a member of ForexSignals, I would like to see a fair contest and this issue resolved immediatley/ASAP...

                  Regards..

                    Yes... to Nick/Dom

                    Did somebody looked into the numbers of BMM yet? Or will he get again 1st place and $750 for a monthly profit of $23.64 only (that's a joke). The drawdown number is a fake!! Maybe he won last month's competition the same way. That's probably why he wont give an interview.

                    I know what is saw with my own eyes realtime on 11th and 12nd April. He was in a big drawdown with Long DAX trade. You have the investor password, so just check the account history in MT4 from 10th April on. What was his last trade: DAX Long on 10th April around 12'230? Closed at B/E on 12th April? Just need to look at the chart then to see that the drawdown in the ranking cannot be correct.

                    Every serious trader here would appreciate if we would get an answer to this matter soon...

                        I already talked with FS team about this issue one week ago, let them do their work on refining the ranking formula that, I remember to you all, is the same for everybody

                        No, my last month competition was not affected by this "issue"

                        No, I am going to have a written interview as soon as I receive the questionary as agreed before Easter

                            We are looking at this today - we know what the issue is its just going to take a bit of time to correct it. I'll update later.

                              posted in blog:

                              This is a quick update to let you know that the trading competition stats are going through some maintenance that has taken far longer than anticipated. Please note that the stats have not been updating since early GMT Friday, and will remain offline over the weekend until we complete.

                              This will have no effect to any person's stats, and they'll automatically calculate the days missed once we put them back online.

                                We are still working on this - its turned into a MASSIVE recode of multiple areas to get everything in line and working properly.

                                This was actually only effecting BMM as he's pretty much the only person trading CFD's. I'm hoping to have it sorted in the next 24 hours.
