Changing the Rankings
One of the issues that community members have come to us in the past is that it is hard to find new and exciting traders.
We have since then changed the rankings and included more parameters for you to filter traders by (Max Drawdown, Average exposure, Profitable weeks). We have added several widgets across the OpenBook to give more exposure to traders within the rankings. And about half a year ago we added the Advanced Filters, located on the left side of the Rankings page. These include 8 changeable parameters that can filter traders according to your interests.
Now we are taking another step forward and reshuffle the rankings. Every two weeks our team will construct a new Rankings page according to different searches using the Advanced Filters and display that search as the default rankings page.
This will contribute in several ways –
It will lead to an exposure of many new traders with differing strategies. As the filters are set in different combinations, new traders that have not received exposure before will come to the forefront.
It will give examples to the searches available through the Advanced Filters. Having many options can be confusing as times, seeing practical implementations of them will benefit you.
It will also help in another issue community members have pointed out to us, traders that trade in order to get in the rankings. As the rankings will be changing every week, it will not help to trade in a certain way to get in them. Traders will have to concentrate on making profits for themselves and their copiers in their own way. Hopefully this will bring a further rise in the profits made in the community.
Our aim is to help our community be profitable, as profitable users stay here and bring new users. We believe diversification, in instruments and in your people based portfolio, is a key element to reduce the inherent risks in trading. We are always looking to bring new tools for our community to increase their success rate.
