  • Results of the “Heroes of PAMM” Contest

    The 4th round of "Heroes of PAMM” - a Forex trading contest for live PAMM accounts - ended on December 31st, 2018. Now it's time to recap the results of last year's final contest and announce the winners. The final rating includes only those traders, whose drawdown was under 20%. Over the course of 3 months 33 traders were competing for the prize fund of 10 000 USD. According to the contest rules, the winner gets the main prize - 5,000 USD as investment to his PAMM account. The runner-up gets 3,000 USD and the 3rd place holder - 2,000 USD.

    The competition was intense and up till the last moment we could not predict who will make it to the top 3. The 2nd and 3rd places are separated by less than half percent! The best results in this "Heroes of PAMM” contest were demonstrated by the trader aleksashka - over 3 months his initial deposit increased by over 115%.

    Let us proudly present our three winners*:

    • aleksashka
    • a2204

  • FXOpen will raise margin for GBP pairs on December 10th

    Dear Traders,

    We would like to remind you that the UK parliament will vote on the EU Withdrawal Bill on 11th December 2018. There is a high degree of uncertainty as to the outcome of the vote and all GBP currency crosses are likely to experience significant volatility with increased risk of market gaps.

    Due to this FXOpen is going to increase margin requirements up to 5 times their normal values for all GBP pairs. Changes will take effect starting with the market opening on December 10th, 2018 without further notice.

    We are taking this measure to reduce your risk due to the potential high volatility, rapid price movements or market gaps that may occur in case of further political escalation. Please consider this information in your trading and ensure you have sufficient funds on your account to maintain your positions.
