FXstreet.com, in collaboration with AFB FX, is happy to announce the Trader of the Year 2013, the 6th edition of the competition, to be held from June 2nd to 28th, 2013.

Barcelona, May 2nd, 2013 — FXstreet.com is organizing the 6th edition of the Trader of the Year Contest, a competition open to all individuals who are minimum 18 years old at the time of the contest start, excluding residents of the US. As last year, the contest will be conducted on DEMO accounts only. Registration is opening on May 1st, 2013 at 09:00PM GMT and will close on June 1st 2013 at 09:00PM GMT.

The contest will start on June 2nd, 2013 at 09:00 pm GMT and will end June 28th, 2013 at 09:00 pm GMT, when all open positions will be closed and all profit and loss (P&L) will be realized. All contestants will start with USD 5,000 of virtual funds in their trading accounts and with a leverage of 1:100. They are allowed to use all of the features of AFB FX’s MT4 trading platform and use any Expert Advisors (apart from unethical trading). The scores of the top ten performers at any given point in time of The Trader of the Year Contest 2013 will be showing on FXstreet.com and afbfx.com throughout the lifetime of the contest.

AFB FX sponsors the competition and the winner will be the contestant with the highest Account Equity. The runner-up will be the contestant with the second highest Account Equity, and the third place will be the contestant with the third highest.

“The Trader of The Year is becoming an important event in our site”, says Carolina May, CEO of FXstreet.com. “We are launching now the 6th edition. We have found the support of many brokers along the years. This proves the industry’s interest for the initiative.” The idea behind the competition is for traders to compete with each other, but not only: “We hope to generate a place for learning, trading, sharing strategies and of course offering a reward to the winners”, stresses May. “Giving a relatively limited period of time (1 month) for the traders to get a profitable record encourages them to have a clear vision of their strategy and how they will control risk.”
