DislikedIt's stated on the Oanda site that active accounts were counted only! Who is forexcrunch? A faggy character from pokemon,your favorite cartoon?Ignored
Yes, I get interest payed everyday even if I don't have position opened.
I THINK, because you can exchange currencies between your accounts and make good money with it, it can be counted as profit??? Example: When EURUSD hits bottom, exchange all your Dollars into Euro account, let's say at 1.2:1. When EURUSD hits top, buy dollars back at 1.4:1 by moving your money into USD account and you have made lots of money by doing nothing. It is the same as trading with 1:1 leverage, without any worries or stoplosses... or worrying about lack of hedging at Oanda.... I know at least one guy who does it at Oanda, and this guy is not me *g*, I am the second guy I know ^^. There you go 50% a year on your account by doing nothing....
By the way, who the hell made that stupid regulation? He needs to be hanged! The regulation must sound like this: percentage of accounts that are 100% and up for the quarter, percentage of accounts that are 50%-99% and up of the quater and so on, so we see where the trick lies. Maybe Oanda has many accounts that are like 1-2% profitable which completely overshadows statistics.
By the way, having half of the accounts profitable is a good reason for oanda start bashing their customers, hunting stop losses, play with spread a little more... to lower that number slightly in exchange for good profit. This is what I would have done if I owned Oanda. No hard feelings, it's business only.
I found a penny today. That's +100 pips for me.
