1 Week Left For The Contest Registration!

Sunday, April 25th, 2010

Over 350 traders have already registered for our first trading contest – have you? If not, then go right ahead and register – only 7 days are left for registration, what are you waiting for? $3,500 will be given out!

Also, if you haven’t been reading in the community section, FXDD have lowered the trading requirement size for withdrawing your prize to mini-lots trades instead of standard lots (1/10 of the original requirement).

On another note, we’ve added a new review section to our website – Expert Advisors. So if you’ve been using a commercial Expert Advisor and want to share your experience with the community, you’re more than welcome.  If you want us to add your commercial EA, let us know (It’s free!).

Have a great week,

The Myfxbook team.

Contests Are Finally Here!

Sunday, April 18th, 2010

We are proud to announce the opening of our new contests section! You can now register to the first contest which will begin in 2 weeks time:

Although you compete with a demo account, $3,500 will be given out (yes, real money):

  • $2,000 for first place
  • $1,000 for second place
  • $500 for third place

We would like to thank FXDD for being the sponsors of our first contest ever! Thanks guys!

Some more updates:

  • We have created a new MetaTrader connection wizard and troubleshooter for quicker help.
  • We have created a new Myfxbook EA which doesn’t use the built-in publisher (FTP) but it’s own connection (HTTP) to our servers. In other words, it’s much better than the publisher. Check out the differences here.
  • Brokers can now be sorted:

2 New Languages And New Features

Sunday, April 4th, 2010

2 more languages were released today for selection as your default interface language: Slovak and Czech.

Myfxbook is now available in 5 languages: English, Russian, Polish, Slovak and Czech. Well done guys!

Also, we’ve added some new features to the economic calendar. Clicking on the ‘more’ button in the calender, will open up the following menu:

- You can now filter the calendar to show only events you’re interested in seeing and are relevant to your trading.

- You can schedule a notification per each event, which will be sent to your email address. All you have to do is click on the bell icon for each event you would like to be notified for:

Some other updates:

- You might have noticed the website works much faster; we’ve upgraded our servers the past week to handle the increasing load, and it definitely made a huge improvement.

- We’re working on a more robust solution to replace the MetaTrader’s in-built publisher, since it often disconnects and fails to resume. More details soon.

- We’re working hard to complete and open the contests area, and hopefully it will be ready in the following week or two.

Happy Easter!
