    Again same pair and open/close time, lot size… (look 05.13.10 trade)

    This competitsion is really good and interesting. But this is not trading competitsion if someone use more then one account. I hope that MyFXBook fix that problem.

    klaabukosmos, we’re taking different measures to recognize those accounts – it’s not easy to spot those accounts as there are thousand accounts to look at.
    Similar trading results in most cases are simply a coincidence, however there is indeed a very small percentage of traders who try to use multiple accounts to trade the contest.
    We’ll be implementing an automated solution into our next contest to spot similar trade behaviors on different accounts, which should make it very hard get through it.

    If you have any ideas on the subject, do let us know.

    Also, thank you for the extensive research – it’s much appreciated :)
