FBS Launches “Analytics Idol 2013” Forex Contest

FBS, the Forex broker that likes to mollycoddle its clients with various perks, has stayed true to itself by launching a New Year Forex forecast contest, called (rather attractively) Analytics Idol 2013. The contest, with a prize fund of $500, will give cash rewards to five traders with accurate forecasts of the price of the EUR/USD pair at the close of the market on December 31, 2013.

 

To participate in the contest, you need to have a real trading account with the company: any account will do, which means that even Micro accounts with deposits of as little as $5 are eligible. Hooray! The rest is simple: you need to submit your forecast in the commentaries section at this special contest page.

 

And since the contest is organized and judged by FX Bazooka, the Forex analytical service of the broker, be prepared to show your analytical skills when arguing in favor of your prediction. It should be well founded, that is – only arguments from the Forex field are accepted. Your forecast should include a precise prediction of a price (no ranges or approximations, sorry) and the argumentation should be of at least 50 words. This is like a couple of sentences and I'm sure you can manage with that.

 

But you must be getting anxious to know what the prizes are. The broker will reward five traders in the following categories:

 

- $200  for  the most accurate forecast;

 

- $175  for the most reasonable forecast; 

 

- $50 for the best fundamental analysis; 

 

- $50  for the best technical analysis;

 

- $25 for the most creative argumentation.

 

Hurry up, because if there are two correct predictions with equally sound argumentations, the first one that was submitted will get the award. You may file your commentaries until the end of December 27, 2013. The team of FX Bazooka will evaluate the entries after the New Year holidays and the winners will be announced on January 8, 2014.

 

There is a bunch of good news regarding the contest: for example, your forecast qualifies automatically in all categories, hence you may get the prize for the most reasonable forecast or the most creative one. You may have a talent you haven't thought of. Then, the awards will be immediately transferred to your trading accounts and will be under your full ownership to withdraw and to spend. Good luck, fellow traders!
