Contest Starts Today!

A quick reminder to all the traders – the contest starts today so get ready (in less than 1 hour!).  There are over 700 traders participating so this one is going be a bit harder 🙂 If you haven’t connected your account to Myfxbook yet, please do so as that’s the only way to track your progress and rank.

A small update – we’ve added an option to exclude your account from the community outlook statistics (find it in the settings of the account in question):

Also, we’re almost ready to support FXCM trading accounts (Trading Station and Strategy Trader) and currently in need for beta testers 🙂 .  If you want to help us test it, please send us a message and we’ll send you the software along with instructions on how to use it (we need a small group of around 10 beta testers).

One last thing – you might have not noticed it, but our website went down on Thursday for about 3 hours. This was covered here,1 .

So what exactly happened? Both of the hard drives on one of our servers failed which left us hanging in mid-air. This was obviously an unexpected downtime, and we worked hard (and late into the night) to restore everything and get the website back up and running as soon as possible. Unfortunately,  some of the user avatars and images that were attached to posts were lost as we were left with an older backup only (If you did lose the avatar icon, please upload it again).

In order to prevent this from happening again, we’ve already added 2 more servers which will act as backups to create a fail-safe system in which another server will take over if one fails and will also increase the performance of our website.

Good Luck in the contest!

The Myfxbook team.
