Leading Australian retail forex broker AxiTrader is further expanding the lineup of trading instruments available to its clients.
Shortly after introducing a set of new energy and agricultural contracts, the broker is adding Copper CFDs to its offering. To access the COPPER.fs Index in MT4, one simply has to right-click on any currency pair in the Market Watch panel, then click ‘Show All’. Traders will find Copper there, ready to be traded.
The competition, in which Forex traders competed in a live online trading environment to see who could generate the biggest percentage return on their original investment, attracted a huge amount of interest in trading circles and unearthed some accomplished traders.
Alex MacKinnon, General Manager at AxiTrader, says,
“It was fascinating to watch this competition unfold and see how the performances of traders ebbed and flowed. Things were very congested before the eventual winner jumped out into a lead they never relinquished”.
The winning trader, Nial Fuller, a known name to traders, ended the competition with a 369% return on investment and collects the first prize of a USD 1million trading account with AxiSelect.
Mr Fuller said,
“Winning the competition was a balance of finding quality trading opportunities, applying sophisticated money management and having the discipline not to trade and risk giving up the lead.”
As well as the main prize, additional prize accounts totaling USD $450,000 were allocated to runners-up in the competition, from places second to fourth.
“Through AxiSelect we do a significant amount of work to support successful traders, so I hope the majority of people involved in this competition – not just the prize winners – choose to stick with trading and apply their skills in the market longer term”, says Mr MacKinnon.
