Contest Points

  • Every participant of the Contest receives Contest Points based on the LIVE trading volume generated by their introduced new LIVE clients during the Contest Period.
  • Only New LIVE* clients introduced during the Contest Period are accounted for in the calculation of the Contest Points.
  • * New LIVE Clients are considered those who have registered an IB number during Tickmill SC Client Area registration and opened an MT4 account under the same IB number.
  • Every 0.01 round lot traded by an introduced new Client equals to 0.01 Contest Points. For example: a Client who traded 5.48 round lots, brings 5.48 Contest Points to their IB.
  • The maximum amount of Contest Points that an IB can receive from each Client is 100 points. For example: a client who traded 400.35 round lots, brings 100.00 Contest Points to their IB.
  • Trading volume is calculated based on the closed trades executed with currency pairs, metals and cryptocurrencies, whereas CFDs and bonds are excluded.
  • Trading volume is calculated for the completed (opened and closed) round turn trades performed during the Contest Period, starting from the day that the new Client has been registered under the IB.
  • A ‘round turn’ trade represents the opening and closing of 1 standard lot position and it is counted as 1 standard lot of trading volume, resulting in 1 Contest Point.


  • Each IB who has introduced at least one new Client during the Contest Period will appear on the Leaderboard.
  • The Leaderboard consists of 3 columns: IB Account, Number of Clients and IB Score.
  • The IB Account column will display the last 4 digits of the IBs’ account numbers.
  • The IB Score is the sum of all Contest Points.
