Do you think it's because most contest participants were putting too much at risk on every trade to win? I'm inclined to think the first 50 contestants maybe used short time frames and small profit targets to achieve those results. Anyway, this was only my 2nd participation in a free trading contest. The first one was in March, 2009 and I quit after several days of losses. This time, I was profitable which was my only goal. So, this was a win for me. Haha. Anyway, 816 participants out of 15 556 were profitable.
