the pdf that i have attached in my first post show the trading results from the october winner at fxcm micro competition. 12000% gains in one month.
Wonder how these fellas are achieving such results
Happy new year and I hope you had a great holiday. I've seen some winners for the King of the Micro trade very little and some trade a lot, nearly a thousand trades during. So the amount of risk the trader is taking is important as well. Before the holidays, DailyFX put together a series of articles on the traits of successful traders which analyzed over 12 million traders during the course of 2 years. It's a good read: Forex @ DailyFX - What Are the Traits of Successful Forex Traders?
Wishing you all the best with your trading in the new year!
