hello ,how is that calculated ?a sell position sobean with 15 lots?could this happen with 1000 usd in this contest

hi there @ad.ameen1997, yes it’s possible. why?

cuz that trader is actually hedging 15 versus 8, so in reality he’s required only the margin for 7

thank you and good luck for the contest :slight_smile:

when the trading cup challenge starts again?

Hi, I entered with the credentials seen on the site for the contest, but there are no commodities on the list of assets that I can trade, what do I do?

hi there @ale.trda :wave:

make sure:
a) you are on the correct demo server
b) it’s soft commodities, not commodities
c) MT4 desktop go to market watch, right click any symbol and then click “show all” (it will show a folder with soft commodities)
d) MT4 mobile, click “+” to add a symbol, then search the symbol name, like COCOA

hope that helps, good luck for the contest :slight_smile:

I had 2 open positions posted this morning, I come back from lunch and I see that the positions have closed, but I haven’t closed anything and what’s more they won’t let me enter the account anymore, it says ‘‘Account invalid’’, what happens?

Thanks for support.
