    do they post the actual trades how he did this?

    I dont see how you can make 700% in 1 week. That seems stupendous, do they let u use intraday margin requirements with overnite positions?

    I needs much luck...he risks too much because it's demo account and he aims at high profit to win the prize....

    Imagine that 100 traders started to trade in a crazy way make 500% profit in 2 weeks....most of them will lose but at least one or 2 will be lucky to win all trades and make this high's more like a game not real trading

  8. Nicholas Nassim Taleb has written a book titled "Fooled By Randomness" that discusses such phenomena, and the problems humans have in interpreting such events.

    Well worth a read if you haven't already...
