AxiTrader, in partnership with AxiSelect, is giving talented traders the chance to win a trading account of one million dollars.
The Million Dollar Trader competition will see Forex traders from around the world compete over a three-month period with the winner being fast-tracked into the AxiSelect program and allocated a trading account of US$1,000,000.
Says Alex MacKinnon, General Manager at AxiTrader, “Needless to say, with such a substantial prize up for grabs we expect the competition to be popular. There are some very talented traders out there and we look forward to seeing how they perform.”
For the duration of the competition, traders will be able to track their performance against other traders via an online leaderboard compatible with the MT4 trading platform.
“We want this to be a very open competition”, says MacKinnon,“so we’re welcoming all kinds of traders and trading styles. Accordingly, as well as the main prize which will be won based on the overall percentage return on investment capital, we’re offering further prize accounts of US$250,000 and US$100,000.
“Ultimately we’re not expecting people to change the way they trade. Million Dollar Trader is more of a chance for the next generation of talented traders to show what they’ve got, measure their performance against their fellow traders and, if they’re a top performer, get access to external funds that can help take their trading to a higher level.”
The Million Dollar Trader competition opens in February 2016 and is open to anyone with a live AxiTrader trading account that meets the minimum opening balance requirement. Entry to the competition is not automatic and any current AxiTrader clients wanting to be a part of the competition will need to opt in.
