OctaFX Champion Round 30 starts Monday, September 1, and we are happy to see the new record – more than 3000 people will trade for the opportunity to win $3000!
Traditionally, we asked our Round 29 winners a few questions for your inspiration!
What is the key factor to your success? Why are you better than everyone else?
1st place – Mr. Yuri Ohrimenko: I think the right choice of the currency pair for the contest and the study of the fundamental data for this pair before the contest bring success. And of course a bit of luck.
2nd place – Mrs. Svetlana Goroshevskaya:The most important oints of success are the analysis and accurate calculation, trading experience and knowledge of the behavior of the financial tools, long observation of them.
3rd place – Mr. Syamsul Hadi Fitri Amd: The main factor of my success is growing confidence in myself that someday I will definitely be able to become a successful Forex trader.
What was your strategy? Have you developed a perfect plan or tried various techniques?
1st place – Mr. Yuri Ohrimenko: In this contest, I relied on the currency pair NZDUSD. When I occupied the first place I tried not to let participants ahead.
2nd place – Mrs. Svetlana Goroshevskaya:The simpler the better! I usually use graphic analysis, MACD indicator, strong levels, and of course the news that give an overall picture of the market.
3rd place – Mr. Syamsul Hadi Fitri Amd: As long as I trade Forex, I learned to follow the strategy, which is used by traders, who succeed in the Forex Market. Then I made innovation by combining indicators, which are user friendly for me so that I can read the direction of movement of the currency in the Forex market.
How long does it take to become a good trader?
1st place – Mr. Yuri Ohrimenko: It all depends on hard work and talent. Also, the faster you are able to tame emotions, the sooner you will be a good trader.
2nd place – Mrs. Svetlana Goroshevskaya:I think one should learn at least a year, and to trade, including in the real accounts, making small deposits to start trading in profit, the main thing after all is captured currency pairs, not dollars.
3rd place – Mr. Syamsul Hadi Fitri Amd: I think it is quite long for me. I have been learning to understand the Forex market from 2008 to 2014. It took approximately 6 years because my background is not an economic expert, and I think I still have a lot of flaws and I guess I have not gotten the achievement, which I expected.
The last runner – Mrs. Mehwish Raheel is not discouraged and fully optimistic concerning next rounds: “I will improve my trading in near future and you will see me again trading in the next round number 30, and I will use my other strategies in that contest.
I have learned a lot of things, and I learned one main thing, that is do proper analysis, then proper calculation of lots, actually I did some mistakes in trading volume, but I will try not do it again in next round”.
