    • What is the OctaFX Supercharged 2 Real Contest?
      It is a trading contest on real accounts for both novice and experienced traders. In this contest, you can win bundles of smartphones with smartwatches every month, and luxury cars at the end of the year.
    • Is it free?
      Yes. You can participate in the Contest absolutely free of charge.
    • How do I win?
      To win monthly prizes, you need to win first place in any of three categories: Gain, Profit Factor, Traded Volume. To win the main yearly prizes, you need to achieve the highest results possible across all three categories throughout the year. The traders performing best will win the main prizes.

      Regardless when you enter the race, you can win.

      New deposits made to your contest account do not negatively affect your current Gain, can positively affect your future Gain, and increase your chances in the Traded Volume category!
    • What should I focus on?
      To win in the Gain or Profit Factor categories, you need to trade well. Every profitable trade will increase your ranking. To win in the Traded Volume category, only the amount of your balance matters. The higher your balance, the more orders you can close and more lots you can trade.
    • How is Gain calculated?
      Gain = (Personal Funds + Amount Withdrawn – Personal Funds When Deposited) / Personal Funds When Deposited × 100%

      In this equation, Personal Funds are the Contest Account’s current equity excluding bonuses, Amount Withdrawn is the total amount of money withdrawn from the contest account after its checking in for the round or making a deposit to it, Personal Funds When Depositedis an equity of the Contest Account (bonus funds not included) at the moment of making a deposit to it.

      If you make several deposits during the round, the total gain is calculated as a sum of separate gains for all timespans between deposits: Gain Sum = Gain 1 (from Initial Deposit to Deposit 2) + Gain 2 (from Deposit 2 to Deposit 3) + Gain N (After Deposit N).

      Whenever you make a new deposit to your contest account, we fix the gain that has already been made in this account before the deposit (Gain 1) and then start to calculate the gain after the deposit (Gain 2), until the end of the contest round or another deposit is made.
    • How is the Profit Factor calculated?
      Profit Factor = Profit from Trades (in USD) / Loss from Trades (in USD)

      If you have equal results with another participant, your ranking is determined by the volume of your profitable trades—if you have greater volume, you win. If these volumes also match, you win if you obtained this profit with fewer trades.
    • How is the Traded Volume calculated?
      Traded volume = total volume of all trades made throughout the round (contest).

      The volume of one trade is only counted once for both yearly and round rankings (for the round in the course of which the trade was opened). The volume of trades opened before signing up for the contest is counted for the first round you take part in.
    • How is the overall ranking calculated?
      Overall ranking = The sum of your places across all three categories in the yearly ranking - the higher the place, the smaller the number.

      The winner is determined by their overall ranking being the smallest number.

      If the participants have equal overall ranking, the winner is determined as follows:
      1. The participant with the lowest sum of places taken in the Profit Factor and Traded Volume categories wins.
      2. The participant with the highest Gain wins. (If the sum of places across Profit Factor and Traded Volume matches.)
    • Do I still have a chance to win if I've made unprofitable trades?
      If you have spoiled your contest statistics with several unsuccessful trades, you can make a Recharge and increase the odds for winning. The Recharge is a reset of all previously achieved results in order to start participating in the contest anew.

      In order to perform a Recharge, you need to log into your Personal Area, view your personal statistics, click the Recharge button, and make sure the trading account’s Personal Funds (equity excluding bonuses) is at least 50 USD (or its equivalent in EUR) and therefore qualified for joining the contest (otherwise deposit the required amount to qualify). All previous data regarding the balance, trades, traded volume, deposits, withdrawals, losses, and profits associated with this account will stop being counted in the contest statistics after the Recharge is made (this does not affect the account itself or trades being opened). The Recharge does not affect previous round results, i.e. the ranking of prior rounds will not reset even if a winner makes the Recharge. You are entitled to use the Recharge any number of times. sc2_recharge_en.png
    • What are the main prizes?
      The Prizes for the contest are as follows (with a money equivalent, where eligible):
      1st place: BMW X5 M (80,000 USD)
      2nd place: Lexus GS-F (60,000 USD)
      3rd place: Honda Civic Type R (30,000 USD).
      The prizes are subject to change without prior notice.

      • Samsung Galaxy S9+ and smartwatch Galaxy Gear S3 (1,000 USD)
      • Oppo Find X and Garmin VivoActive 3 smartwatch (1,000 USD)
      • Huawei P20 PRO and smartwatch Huawei Watch 2 (1,000 USD).

      The prizes are subject to change without prior notice.
    • Will you deliver the prize to my country?
      Yes, we will ship your prize to your location.
    • Can I take money instead of the car?
      We will only transfer money instead of car to you in exceptional cases. If we do, we'll transfer it into your trading account or bank account.
    • How soon will I receive the prize?
      This will take a little time. We will contact you within seven business days after the contest end date.

      Keep in mind that we run a background check on the winners, their legitimacy, information validity, and possible violations. You'll need to provide a full set of original documents (passport or other ID certifying your residence) before being able to take the prize. Your ID must be valid.

      Only then will we send you your round prize or appoint a date and time for the main prize award ceremony.
    • Will I get all the prizes if I win in several categories or rounds?
      You can win a maximum of four round prizes per year. If you win in several categories in one round (including if you used several contest accounts), you can get several prizes together.

      If you win for the fifth time or more, we will pay you out a cash sum of 20% of the monetary value of the prize, and the actual prize will be passed to the participant ranked second in that category.

      You cannot win more than one main prize. If several of your trading accounts qualify for the main prize, we will award you with the most valuable prize of those your accounts qualify for. The participants ranked next most successful will get the remaining prizes.
    • How do I join the contest?
      Sign up or log in to your Personal Area, create a new real account, and check the box 'Sign up account to the Supercharged 2'. Make sure your first deposit amounts at least 50 USD (or its equivalent in EUR). sc2_registration_en.png
    • Can I join the contest right away after signing up?

    • Can I participate in several rounds with one trading account?
      Yes, you can. You only need to register your real account once, and it will automatically participate in all subsequent rounds as long as its Personal Funds (equity excluding bonuses) amount to 50 USD or more. If your Personal Funds drop below 50 USD by the beginning of a new round, the account will not qualify for this round until you replenish the Personal Funds to at least 50 USD. However yearly ranking for such account will still be counted.
    • I registered an account for the contest, but I'm not in the rankings and I did not receive a link to the contest statistics. Why is that?
      Simply registering an account for the contest is not enough to participate. Your account will be activated for the contest and its performance will be counted in the ranking only after you top up your balance by enough that its current equity excluding bonuses becomes at least 50 USD (or its equivalent in EUR).

All absolute values regarding your account will only be presented to you when you log in with your password.
    • What’s an initial deposit?
      All your Personal Funds (equity excluding bonuses) in the account signed up for the contest are considered an initial deposit at the beginning of the round.

      To start participating in the contest, your initial deposit should be 50 USD (or its equivalent in EUR) or more.
    • Can I withdraw money from my contest account?
      You can withdraw money from your contest account at any time. However, if your Personal Funds (equity excluding bonuses) drop below 50 USD after a withdrawal, the account will not qualify for the next contest rounds.

      Yes, you can. But please note that it has no impact on your stats.
    • Will new deposits affect my Gain, if I make them in the course of the contest?
      No, they won't. Whenever you make a new deposit to the Contest Account, we fix the Gain that has already been made within this account before the deposit (Gain 1) and then start to calculate the Gain after the deposit (Gain 2) until the end of the contest round or another deposit is made. Therefore your Gain volume will not be affected by new deposits.
