This year you will have no regrets when the summer holidays are over. Whether you go back to school or work tradimo's got something that's going to keep you on the edge of your seat this autumn. On the 14th of September together with One Financial Markets we are launching a two stage trading tournament that will run all the way til Christmas. The trading competition will have two different stages and the winner of the final stage will be rewarded with a $50,000 account from One Financial Markets to manage, where he/she gets to keep 20% of the profits generated.

Stages of the competition

The two stages will run successively and independently form each other. It means that you are welcome to join either or both stages and you don't need to do the whole tournament to be eligible for a prize. The details of the various stages can be found below:

  • Is the Trading Challenge not available for US residence? Under country I didn't notice a selection for US.
  • Unfortunately the participating broker cannot offer trading accounts to U.S. residents due to financial regulation. We are looking into the details so that we can offer a competition for U.S. residents in the future. Apologies for the inconvenience.

  • You need to develop your own strategy and have confidence in it. Have clear rules for entries, exits, and maximum risk per trade and then backtest it, if you have good results, trade it in a live market on demo, and then finally start trading your own capital. Start out with something small that you can afford to lose and add to it as you build confidence. For most traders getting to the stage where they are making money consistently takes many months of effort and grit. YOur goal should be executing your strategy consistently and making good decisions.

  • HI, I have joined with this on the start that tradimo sent the email. But upon logging into my account, I noticed a $15,000 demo account instead of $50,000, so I register again and it is still $15k. Which one is true?
  • Hi Xtrapips,
    Thanks for joining. The prize of the real money competition stage is a $50,000 account to manage. You start with $15,000 but it doesn't really matter because relative gain counts, not the balance.

  • I already registered and got the account number but I've lost it., Can i register once again or what to do ??
  • Hi Fxosama,
    In order to retrieve your account credentials please write to
  • we'll receive an email saying that the competition started? Or we can simply start trading from September 14?
  • Hi Igor,
    There will be no reminder. You can start trading 14th September from 0:00 BST ie. London time.
  • how to know or check the drawdown of our trading account ?
  • Hi Kraimen,
    You can monitor your drawdown in MT4 detailed reports.

    To create a Detailed Report: right click in the Account History Tab and select All History to get your entire record. Generate a Detailed Report from the same right click menu. Scroll down once the statement is open and check your drawdown numbers.

    Hope that helps.
  • Yes, today is the first day of the competition.
  • A piece of advice from me to all participants: Watch your exposure carefully, already more than 100 participants have been disqualified due to more than 20% drawdown.
