Our first weekly contest will begin next week. Feel free to sign up anytime by making a post in here with the required 4 digits of demo acct# and link to Trade Explorer. I'll have mine posted shortly.

Cool idea! I'd be highly interested in participating in a contest like this! Are there any recommendations for a good demo account?

Yes. Key to Markets. I'm not sure about opening any live account with them, but they are awesome for the purpose of this contest and getting a demo account for energy trading. No signing up outside of MT4. Get as many as you want. Hassle-free. They also offer 500:1 leverage max. I always go with the max for the contest.

Excellent! I'll be sure to review them. Much appreciated EventsTrader. I'm new to the markets so I am grateful for any and all of your recommendations!

I'll join in on the inaugural competition.
Glad to see that you're interested Ef5! Take it easy on us! I am certain I will learn a thing or two from you.

I'm looking forward to some action

The first brave soul to enter. Welcome to the competition. We have the Natural Gas and Crude inventory data due out tomorrow. I previewed them here:

  1. Natural Gas Storage - Sept 5th Preview
  2. EIA Weekly Petroleum Data - Sept 5th Preview

Then, on Friday it's NFP. So there's still plenty of volatility ahead this week. Good luck helgastrxd!

Aw man! I may have jumped the gun!

I opened the demo account that you suggested and reviewing the platform and got into some trades, by accident. I admit, I couldn't resist in mashing on some buttons!

Is there a way to reset the demo account? Should I?

I'll be able to upload my contest credentials tommorrow!

I'm currently in the red with wti, would this disqualify me from the rest of this week's contest?

Absolutely man! Totally understandable. Just get a new demo and start fresh. We are in the first week, so we aren't to help each other get involved. Forget the rules for now! As long as there's no cheating, we are good! Let me know if I can help you out in any way. You got the contest up to three for the fist week. Not bad.
