You will trade CFDs in indices, commodities and of course Forex in a virtual account with a start-up capital of USD 10,000. In order to automatically qualify for the real–money finals, which will be held in Barcelona from 1 to 15 December, your account has to show the highest equity at least once between January and October. Your account is automatically reset to its start-up capital at the beginning of each month, giving you a total of 10 opportunities to qualify for the finals and become the Trading World Champion!
First you have to register. Participation is free. Once you have registered, ActivTrades will send you an email with a link to download your trading platform, MetaTrader 4. The login credentials for your virtual account are included in the same email. The account comes with a start-up capital of USD 10,000, and you can start CFD trading immediately: indices, commodities and of course Forex are available.
In order to qualify for the finals, which will be held in Barcelona from 1 to 15 December 2017, your account has to show the highest equity at least once between January and October on the penultimate day of the month.
If you lose 50% of your start-up capital, your account will be automatically blocked. You can either wait for your account to be reset in the new month or immediately reactivate it with a Rebuy for EUR 9.90 in your Member Area.
Your account is automatically reset to its start-up capital of USD 10,000 at the beginning of each month, meaning that you have a total of 10 chances to qualify as the best trader! If you succeed, we will contact you immediately and invite you to the big showdown in Barcelona/Spain. We hope you'll be able to make it! If you can't, we'll invite the runner-up.
We will pay for your flight (economy) and accommodation at the Marriott AC Forum Hotel.
All 10 finalists and the winner of the Wildcard that we will raffle in November will trade in the trading room that we set up. Every finalist will have access to a real–money account with a start-up capital of USD 10,000.
From 1 December 2017, 08:00 CET to 15 December 2017, 23:00 CET, our finalists can trade during normal trading hours when and as often as they want. The loss limit for the equity in the account is the same as during the qualification phase, namely 50% of the start-up capital.
Finalists that reach the loss limit are eliminated. The trader that shows the highest equity in his account on 15 December 2017 at 23:00 CET wins the competition and is the Trading World Champion 2017. The reward: USD 100,000 in prize money and all of the profit that exceeds the start-up capital of USD 10,000.
All of the other finalists will receive 50% of the profit—if any—that they made above the start-up capital. The organiser carries the loss risk. We will be organising fun events during the finals, such as an interesting tour of the city and a traditional paella evening.
