    For USD/CHF Long by pottermoar, the trade has already been stopped out even before the new week begin. Why people is still voting for this trade?

       I agree completely.  Did you notice that the first 3 trades were submitted before the end the trading on Friday?  I thought the contest was for the week of 3/19-3/23.
