What does Giovanni think? That it’s great!

The famous professional trader Giovanni Cicivelli from Berlin has been working the market for 18 years and really likes the inveus Trading Awards! Giovanni’s USP is to the point:

‘Everything revolves around the finals in Barcelona, where 11 traders from all corners of the world will be going head to head with totally different strategies and tactical approaches. For two weeks and up to 24 hours a day, they’ll be fighting for the trophy with real money.’

We are very pleased that Giovanni Cicivelli has agreed to be our Trading Awards ambassador. Every month of the qualification, he will present a webinar from the perspective of a professional day trader and introduce the finalists and their successes. Needless to say, Giovanni will also be in Barcelona for the finals and will congratulate the brand new Trading World Champion on December 15, 2017 at 11 p.m. CET!

In addition to the contests, the organizer will offer a variety of specials that yield genuine added values for CFD and Forex traders.

From 01 February 2017 participation will cost 9.90 EUR per month (incl. VAT) and can be cancelled any time to the end of the month. Participation in January and February 2017 is free.

USD 100,000 for the Trading World Champion


You are a Forex and/or CFD trader on Indices and Commodities with a virtual USD 10,000 start-up capital based trading account. To automatically qualify for the final from December 1 to 15 at the AC Forum Hotel in Barcelona, you simply have to present the highest equity amount in your account once between January and October.

Every time a new calendar month begins, your account is automatically reset to the start-up capital amount. Hence, you have a total of 10 chances to qualify and become the World Trading Champion!

First and foremost, you have to register – the first month (January 2017) is free. As soon as you have completed this step, ActivTrades will send you an email with a link, from which you will be able to download your trading platform – MetaTrader 4. In the same email, you will also receive the access data for your virtual trading account – complete with start-up capital of USD 10,000. You can start trading CFDs at 0.01 am CET on January 1, 2017: Indices, commodities and of course Forex securities are available.

The qualification phase

To qualify for the finals, you will have to generate the highest equity in your virtual trading account ONCE between January and October. The equity will be determined on the second-to-last calendar day of each month. If you lose 50% of your start-up capital, your trading account will be frozen. In this case, you can wait for the reset in the new calendar month or you can have your trading account unfrozen immediately if you pay a release fee of EUR 9.90.

Every time a new calendar month begins, the deposit balance is reset to the start-up capital of USD 10,000. Hence, you have a total of 10 chances to qualify as the best trader for the final. If you achieve this feat, we will contact you right away and invite you to participate in the great showdown in Spain. Of course we hope that you will have the time and that you will join us. If you can’t make it, we will ask the trader who came in second.

Showdown. The Real Money Final!

rollup_inveus_101116_c.inddWe will pay for our finalists’ flights (Economy) and hotel accommodation (AC Forum, Barcelona). All 10 finalists and one wildcard winner will be trading in a trading room we have leased. The wildcard winner will be drawn in November. Each finalist will be given separate access to a trading account that has a balance of USD 10,000 in real cash in it. That’s the start-up capital. Our 11 finalists will be able to trade during official trading hours – whenever and as often as they want to – from December 1, 2017 at 8 am through to December 15, 2017 at 11 pm. The equity loss limit in the deposit account is the same as it was during the qualification phase – 50%. Any finalist who reaches the loss limit is disqualified. The trader who retains the highest equity in his trading account on 12/15/2017 at 11 pm CET will win the contest and will be crowned the 2017 inveus Trading World Champion!

He (or she) will have earned a huge reward: USD 100,000 in prize money plus all the profits traded above and beyond the start-up capital. All other finalists will receive a total of 50% of their traded profits, provided they have generated profits. The event organiser will assume the loss risk. During the time we spend together at the final, we will offer fantastic events – for instance a sight seeing trip or a traditional evening sharing a Paella.


USD 10,000 for the Swing Champion!


The Swing Challenge contest will determine the best discretionary trader who can go all the way. During this challenge, the trading account is not reset once throughout the Main Event, which begins on January 1 and ends on December 15, 2017 – so trading results are tracked across the entire trading year.

The trader with the highest Profit Factor after closing a minimum of 25 trades in his or her virtual trading account at the end of the contest will win the contest and will be crowned Swing Champion!


USD 5,000 for the best Trading Robot


The EA Challenge offers every developer of fully automated trading systems the opportunity to send a trading robot (Expert Advisor) of his or her choice to the race on MetaTrader 4. As with the main contest, this event runs from 1 January until 15 December 2017.

The Expert Advisor developer whose robot generates the highest equity in his or her trading account by the end of the contest will win and be crowned our first inveus EA Champion.
