Dear participants of the Forex Article Contest,
The contest organizers would like to clarify the issue with regard to the “People’s Choice Award” that went to the author of the most popular article with the social networkers.

The article «Few facts that can change your way of trading» by Marcin Nowogórski got the greatest number of ‘likes’ and ‘shares’ in social networks with passing to the very content published in the corporate blog. According to the judges, it signalizes the users’ interest in reading the material itself not just helping the author to promote it by simple clicking on the ‘likes’ and ‘share’ buttons.


Two articles under the title «Success and Failure in Trading the Markets» and «Inside Bar Trading Strategy» were excluded from the social networks popularity list due to the unfair methods of voting used. The contest organizers considered unnatural the number of ‘likes’ and ‘shares’ without reading the material itself.

Anyway, both the articles participated in the contest on equal ground with the rest works published in FXOpen blog and could have taken one of the 7 main prizes. However, the judges distributed the prizes in a different way, as was announced before.

We’d like to draw your attention to the fact that an appeal to your friends in social networks to vote for the article is seen as unfair practice unless your friend get real interest in the content itself and go to the corporate blog to analyze the material closely. Such votes are viewed as cheating and won’t be considered in the competition.

Please, see below the graphical information that helped to determine the winner in the “People’s Choice Award” nomination.
