Last round in the year 2014 is finished and we are ready to share winner’s experience with you! It always makes us proud to receive traders’ stories and give them a chance to be heard!
Let us remind you the names of our winners:
1st place – Mr. R Tjahyo Sembodo from Indonesia on his experience as a winner:
I praise and am thankful to Allah God Almighty and I feel great. After several attempts, I finally found myself exactly where I wanted to be. I actually did not think I could be in first place at least in the first 3 weeks of the round. Last week I saw a chance to occupy 3rd place and I tried to trade safe and be more careful. The last 3 days I was surprised to be the 3rd and I tried to maintain my position. And on a beautiful weekend today, in the last days in the month of December I received an email notification from OctaFX that I achieved the highest position in the contest. Wow I am very excited and happy. Thanks OctaFX for this wonderful weekend.
Now let me tell you about my trading:
I do not always have time to be in front of the computer and analyze every opportunity. I actually have little time to analyze. So I was assisted by a robot in the day-to-day trading.
My technique was scalping with price action guide combined with looking for an opportunity to get a pull back price when the price passed the resistance or support on 5M chart. Yes, I developed a trading robot to help me with these techniques. In addition I did swing trades manually.
This round is my highest achievement after the round 32 contest a month ago: I was in 4th place. Previously, I've experienced a few times a margin call in the demo and live account.
In my opinion everyone can learn the concepts of Forex Trading quickly in a matter of months. However, becoming consistent takes years. Be patient, learn from experience and have a good money management – that is the best way to become a good trader and also survive in this business. I would not say I am better than the others.
I prefer to say it was the right time for the right opportunity and the right trading track. Eliminate greed and fear, as it is the key to success. I believe every person has the opportunity to be the best.
2nd place – Mr. Aliaksei Matusevich from Belarus:
I am happy to occupy the 2nd position. I tried various techniques. I think I just got lucky, but now I am considering participating in other OctaFX promotions. Practice makes perfect!
3rd place – Mr. Ahmet Metin Yilmaz from Turkey:
It was nice and exciting experience and it didn’t take much time. Discipline and belief in my system which I developed with time helped me to gain my results. My strategy is based on price action, and yes, I develop this strategy with trying various techniques.
Actually I don't think that I am a good trader. If I occupy the first place in the future, I will think about giving advice to fellow traders.
The last runner in the contest, Mr. Rathuwaduge Suranga from Sri Lanka:
I was trying for 2 years to become the winner and to ocuupy the first place. However I am happy about your company even being the last. I will try my best to get to the 1st place next round. I have played and learned a lot to improve next time. It will take a long time to become a good trader! I am with you since 2012, but I am still leaning!
