Free Weekly Competitions Back Again! Welcome to Profitable WeeK!

The last few weeks at ForexCup have been dedicated to a new format of paid weekly contests – Scalping Virtuoso. This, however, does not imply that we have decided to abandon our traditional competitions. We just cannot deprive our traders of their favorite contests! So, today, December 4th, we launch the registration for the free weekly competition “Profitable WeeK 12/11/2013-12/18/2013.”

We’ve made some changes to the competition making it more diverse:

  1. The competition will partially cover two weeks instead of familiar 5 trading days within a single week.  Thus, you will have a chance to rest at the weekend, correct your strategy to achieve even greater success in the end.
  2. There will be 7 currency pairs and a cross-pairEURGBP – available for trading. Your choice of trading tools and their efficiency may be pretty interesting.   
  3. US$200 for the 1st place is a great prize for such sort of competitions. The total number of prizes amounts to 6 and you have all chances to win one of them.

FXOpen provides additional bonus fund of US$1,100. Increase your start-up deposit by 80% and get a healthy part of it!

The contest terms are transparent, the restrictions are clear, the prizes and bonuses are impressive. Isn’t all this a reason for joining the free weekly competition and become the winner?
