In order to be eligible to win, you must fund a self-directed approved account during the Registration Period (see A.1 below). The top 10 highest gainers in terms of percentage of profit during the Contest Period (see A.2 below) will be eligible for the cash prizes listed in section E (see below).

The percentage of profit is calculated by using your cumulative CLOSED profit or loss during the Contest Period and dividing it by the Beginning Balance (see A.3 below). For example, if your closed profit is USD500, and your Beginning Balance is USD2,500, your percentage of profit equals 20%. Please note that we don't use floating profit or floating loss to calculate your percentage of profit.

A.1. Registration Period means the period from 00:00 GMT +3 July 1, 2011 until 23:59:59 GMT +3 July 15th, 2011. This period denotes the time to register and fund an approved self-directed account. The minimum funding during the Registration Period is USD250 or currency equivalent.

A.2. Contest Period means the period from 00:00:01 GMT +3 July 18, 2011 until 23:59:59 GMT +3 August, 31 2011.

A.3. Beginning Balance means the balance we use to calculate your percentage profit or loss during the Contest Period. The Beginning Balance is equivalent to your Equity at the end of the Registration Period. For example, if you deposit USD1,000 during the Registration Period, and the Equity is USD1,200 at the end of the Registration Period, we will use USD1,200 as the Beginning Balance for the contest. Please note that the Beginning Balance will include any bonuses or credits in your account.
