The winner of the 3 month trading challenge achieved a 114.49% risk-adjusted return. The runner up, also from Jordan, achieved an 86.71% risk adjusted return.
Of the top 50 traders, 11 (or 22% of the total) were from the Middle Eastern region – a particularly remarkable showing given that the region represents just over 6% of the world population.
“These results show the growing and sophisticated number of traders from our region,” says Ilja Perschbacher, Managing Director of Varengold Bank Dubai, “and is one of the key reasons that Varengold Bank opened its regional headquarters in Dubai to better serve our clients in the region.”
The forex Trading Challenge began on 1 August and ran through the end of October. The winner was chosen on the basis of the risk adjusted net yield (the net yield of each account divided by the average standard deviation).
Investors interested in having the winner trade an FX account for them may contact Varengold Bank Dubai directly.
