  • Three personalized crystal trophies are prepared for the first three places, and the trader who takes the first place will receive a cash prize of $50,000 without any additional conditions. 

The ForexCup Trading Championship is a brand-new name among other trading competitions, but it has a big legacy. With the support of renowned partners, including global Forex ECN broker FXOpen, the championship provides an opportunity for traders to compete with the best and put their trading strategies to the test.
