The App

TopTradr is a companion app to your trading activities. Link it to an FXCM Demo or Live trading account and trades that you make using FXCM's trading platforms will appear in TopTradr and be processed using our unique algorithm to generate your score. Available for iPhone, iPad and Android mobile devices.

 

The Score

The Toptradr scoring algorithm evaluates traders by awarding points for low-risk / high-reward trades and equity growth consistency. Each trade is scored according to its risk reward, and the sum of those trade points is weighted according to the consistency of the returns on the account. Traders who achieve low-risk, high-reward trades - and are making money consistently - will have a high Toptradr score.

Your score is determined by your trading performance over the last 20 days of trading and is a rolling score. Find out more...
