I am experiencing a difficulty downloading Hantecs' MT4 for the contest, i'd tried all means but the problem still the same, i've talked directly with Hantecs' agent for the link to download the MT4 but the problem is same. I changed the Norton settling but the Adobe reader couldn't read the file. Is anyone experiencing the same problem and found a solution, please let me know.......thank you.

Hi Ho Thach, Hantec IT team will contact you soon to solve this issue.
I got Hantec's feed-back regarding your issue... I hope it helps:
The below link should bypass your computer’s antivirus security.
The download is a winrar file with Hantec Markets’ MT4 platform inside, after unzipping the folder to your computer, please install and follow the prompts.
Thank you, everything is good now. I'd downloaded the MT4 and i am ready for the contest :) i think Honest has same issue
hi Ho Thach,
the email we have received before "Your login and password will give you access to your contest account with USD 25,000 of virtual funds and a leverage of 100:1."
but after I logged in it seems still zero now in my account. Is that just start available 25K on Sept 16th ?
Yes, FXWizard said the 25K will be available when the contest starts to prevent opening positions ..10 days to go... good luck Honest
Good luck to you too Ho Tach.
Btw, ... my position is usual only 2-5 trades a week, can I defeat scalpers with 20-50 trades a week? I don't think so ... hehe :)
I just participate with respect and join for fun.
Yes, I got it also, Ho Thach
and our issue has been resolved.
Francesc, thanks a lot :)
Hi Guys - I would like to wish all FX Street members all the very best in the trading contest and will be very interested to see the results , the methods, and the man v machine part etc.
Just a few comments I would like to make after hearing different views etc regarding competitions in trading. I appreciate that it is a demo contest and so its most important that you do not view this the same as real live trading with your own money.
I do think trading contests can be good for focusing traders minds and also placing them under pressure - because these are two important emotions you have to have full control of.
If you treat the contest in a "dont care way" thinking its not real money and if I get blown out etc - you will probably win. However in you real trading life - you won't ;-) - simply because your logic and mind set will be totally different.
I do not know all the restrictions and regulations of the contest other than the leverage is fixed at 100:1. That should stop expert scalpers racking up a few thousand % gains in a few weeks and helps to create a more level playing field.
The key to winning will be down to RR ratios - win success rates ( they need to be over 70%+)- extremely small losses and number of trades you can pack in during the duration of the contest.
If you have a poor success rate and also a low RR ratio - it wont matter then if you do only 10 trades a week or 100. However if you have a very high success rate / good RR's and small losses then yes Honest - 100 trades a week should trounce 10 per week.
I had studied all different Forex trading contests around the world between 2007 and 2009 and had seen some winners with relatively few trades - but they had been compounding extremely well and catching some superb rally runs - that of course does not always happen every month.
With regards to man v machine - with it being a demo contest - the best bots should win.
I remember between 2006 -2008 trying out 5 of the top bots at that time with different brokers both on demo and live. The demo results were all nearly the same and were extremely encouraging - the live trading with different brokers - was amazingly different results (yes i wonder why lol)
I still believe if you have some very skilled manual traders who are using all methods ( scalps / swings/ longer term) during the duration of the contest - there dynamic flexibility should beat the best automated bots- which after all are fixed and can be caught out by different trading session. By combing multiple flexible strats with some computer assistance to identify other similar exact set ups over say 5- 10 pairs - should assist in obtaining peak performance and the optimal result.
Have Fun and good luck to all
you are very welcome ;)
