How do I access the official competition setup?
The process is simple.
- Register with the EXANTE Investor League here.
- Open a demo EXANTE account.
- We’ll add the setup to your account on the League start date. Just open any EXANTE trading tool (web, desktop, mobile) and you are ready to compete!
If you don’t receive the official setup on the first day of the competition, please make sure your demo account was properly registered. You need to make sure you signed up for the EXANTE Investor League before the deadline.
If your registrations are all in-date, please contact email@example.com to resolve the issue as soon as possible.
NOTE: If you have several sub accounts linked to your profile, you will receive the setup on the sub account with a number ending in *.001.
If you registered on the EXANTE platform with multiple email addresses, only the one you used on the competition website will receive the competition setup.
What is the competition setup?
An ad-hoc EXANTE demo account will be opened for the purposes of the competition. Each League has a slightly different setup, yet the following features remain consistent across the board:
- 100,000 GBP of virtual currency for trading;
- The Cash module for currency conversion;
- Access to live quotes of the market chosen by the organising party.
The setup is uploaded to contestants’ accounts on the day of the competition. When the contest has concluded, the platform and contestants’ accounts are reset to their default settings.
How is the winner identified?
The winner will be certified as follows:
